A brief networking dessert reception at the end provides a chance to connect with additional students.

The proverb, "What gets measured gets managed," has been attributed to Peter Drucker, the great management consultant and educator. Surveys are one method commonly used to measure factors important to organizations. For instance, they can be effectively utilized to gain key insights into the people who are served. Customer satisfaction surveys are often used to identify product and service strengths and weaknesses, to ultimately make improvements. Employee surveys are frequently used to determine employee engagement in order to identify ways of increasing job satisfaction and job performance. However, creating a valid survey and deploying it effectively can be challenging. This webinar will focus on the effective use of surveys to assess customer and employee satisfaction. Scientifically based techniques for survey item development will be reviewed in a straightforward manner so that participants can readily apply these approaches. The presentation will also review data visualization methods that enhance the interpretability and communication of survey results.
