To achieve our goals by 2030 we will need to continually measure our progress and evaluate our success.

We will achieve this through a structured and consistent measurement framework:

  • First, we measure our progress toward achieving our strategic priorities.
  • Then, we measure our success according to our overall goals.

A detailed framework of indicators and measures is part of our strategy implementation plan, which will be reviewed and updated on a regular basis to remain relevant, agile and responsive to change.

An outline of the ways that we will measure success is provided below.


ISO standards used everywhere

We will measure the use of standards, the visibility of ISO and the awareness of ISO standards amongst our target audiences.


Meeting global needs

We will measure whether global needs are being met in terms of timeliness, coverage of emerging/priority topics and the fitness for purpose of ISO standards and related products.


All voices heard

We will measure the strength and diversity of voices in the ISO system – not just who is participating, but how they engage, play an active role and how their contributions are reflected in our work.
