Is measurement evil?


I've tried to summarize my understanding below.

I'm not opposed to measurement, where you have an ordered and stable relationship between cause and effect. However, when there is no such relationship then explicit outcome based measurement is harmful. For the record we are working on quantitative measures from narrative to allow us to measure impact. My blog is an attack on UK government use of outcome based measurement, which as far as I can see is universally negative.
