Step 6: Evaluate

What was the impact of the change? How did the team contribute?


  • What was the impact of the policy or practice on different stakeholder groups?
  • What have perceptions changed among stakeholders with regards to transparency, confidence in leadership, safety, etc.?
  • How consistently was the practice applied?
  • Did circumstances change while the practice was in place?
  • Did stakeholders turn to members of team for guidance?
  • How did the team function?
  • Did the team maintain its shared mental model?
  • Did the team reconvene to change approaches as needed?
  • Can you publish your experience?
