4.7 Formulating indicators (vi)

When you think about how to find out about your indicator, very often you can choose between a direct measure and finding out about stakeholder opinion.

What do you think would be the alternatives for your final two indicators?

The implementation of the management plan is a complex process which might be difficult to measure using a single quantitative indicator.

In such cases, expert opinion - in this case the opinion of Forestry Commission experts - is often a good way to find out about the indicator.

Similarly business confidence can be used as a measure of economic viability, although in this case a more direct measure of economic variables could also be used.
