This thesis explores the measurement of Iwi outcomes and how progress, from an Iwi perspective, can be considered. While conventional indicators of progress (such as economic and social development) have usefully informed measures of Iwi progress, they have often failed to capture the more subtle and less measureable aspects of Iwi development. The research revealed that while Iwi notions of progress or development are consistent with universal markers or indicators, a range of aligned measures, indicators, or preferences also exist which are unique to Iwi and which can be described as Iwi specific. The research also revealed that when culturally specific measures are combined, a more comprehensive impression of Iwi development is possible. The research resulted in a framework that combined Iwi specific and universal measures enabling them to better guide and assess their future.
