Following on from the brief Making the Case for Outcomes Management to Financial Service Providers, which presented the "why" and the "what for" of outcomes management, these guidelines set out the "how": how to do outcomes management in a practical, credible, "reasonable cost" way. The guidance is founded on lessons learned from a number of financial service providers (FSPs) and other stakeholders who have experience with outcomes data collection, analysis, and reporting. The information presented here draws on best practice so far, with a focus on identifying what is necessary and useful, as well as the pitfalls to avoid.
