Some things, like the success of a corporate relocation or the impact of a cross-cultural training are harder to measure quantitatively. How would you do it, and what would you measure?
In these instances, surveys are sometimes sent out to track satisfaction, which can be a helpful way of gathering qualitative data - people's words, thoughts, opinions, and experiences. Qualitative data accounts for some of the most critical information available as it seeks to understand directly from the source, and can include more of an explanation than we might be able to gather from solely analyzing numbers - the full story, things we might not have realized otherwise, how something happened, the reason why it happened, and so on.
While quantitative metrics are most certainly useful and important, let's not forget that not everything is easily measurable with numbers. And that many of these items that are not easily trackable with figures, are extremely important things to keep track of in life.
A special thank you to James Clear, whose book Atomic Habits served as much of the inspiration behind this post. I am grateful for the opportunity to build on your wise ideas and concepts my friend.
