This session will provide an overview of processes for evaluating organizational change efforts, including evaluation findings from communities, states and territories that have undergone organizational development assessment and planning efforts.  Satisfaction data as well as system change data has been collected to assess the impact of this process as well as to inform the ongoing improvement of tools and processes.  Post‐intervention data analyses will be presented and consists of both descriptive statistics and inferential statistics that allow for a comparison between the pre‐assessment efforts and the post-assessment efforts.   Post-intervention data includes data collected immediately after the end of the initial assessment and planning efforts, as well as longer term impact data.  Two types of impact data will be presented:  (1) re-assessment 3 to 5 years later to determine if system changes were sustained and (2) improved population health outcomes.
