About Webinar:

The use of performance measurement enables public organizations to provide services with improved efficiency, as well as increasing transparency and accountability toward citizen stakeholders. Much of the emphasis has focused on developing appropriate performance measures, with less emphasis on implementing performance measures in public and nonprofit organizations. Because the stakes are so high, and the potential return so great, implementation issues need to be considered from the start of the performance measurement process.

This webinar will discuss the critical success factors for implementing performance measurement initiatives at various levels of government, along with the following key takeaways:

·         Significance of leadership for performance measurement

·         Basic dos and don'ts of trying to become data-driven and implement performance management

·         Elements of evaluation methodology that are critical for success of any such effort 



·         Continue conversation after the webinar

·         Share extra information that may be relevant for the discussion

·         Build possible partnerships and promote collaboration

·         Work on next steps
