Three Brite Ideas on Alumni Engagement Metrics
As with every episode, we asked our guest to share three brite ideas to sum up the conversion.
Here are Nik’s brite ideas on alumni engagement metrics.
Focus on outcomes
Start at the end and work backwards. Define what you want to achieve with your team, where you want to make an impact, and what that impact looks like. Then plan how you are going to achieve those outcomes.
Collaboration is Key
Defining outcomes and corresponding metrics offers a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with colleagues across the campus. Ask colleagues what keeps them awake at night and figure out how alumni relations can help support them.
Keep it Simple
People often imagine metrics are far more complicated than they are in practice. We need competent, committed professionals in the space who can run the data, analyze it, and turn it into insights, but a lot of what has been discussed in this episode isn’t a huge undertaking, and its impact is massive!
