Up to this chapter, this book has dealt with the ‘mechanics’ of standard setting — how to write a standard that means something to you; how to construct a simple monitoring tool that is relevant to the standard that you have written; how to collect the data that you need; and how to put together an action plan for improving the activity related to your standard. I hope it has been practical and clear and that you feel confident enough to try out the process for yourself. If you have been putting the guidance in the book into practice as you have read it, then I hope that you are pleased with the finished result. With practice it will get easier, you will be able to write standards and prepare monitoring tools quickly, and it will integrate naturally into your working practice.
