How do we measure progress?

In an era where what gets measured matters, how do we measure a movement towards more participatory forms of democracy or greater transparency? I’ve been in conversation with a municipality that is about to develop a Charter for Citizens Engagement. Part of the challenge is that councillors want to know how they will measure progress. Any ideas?
