Public sector performance management has long held the promise of improving efficiency, productivity, and community outcomes. Many jurisdictions have explored or even taken steps towards implementing performance management programs, yet few have been able to claim success. The challenges are both organizational and technical.
Those agencies that have launched performance measurement initiatives recognize the benefits are great. Yet many organizations encounter the harsh reality that the practice is complex, requires discipline, and evolves over time. Key data has unclear owners and isn’t easily accessed. Metrics are complex and don’t always reflect the reality of real-world work. Increasing focus on outputs can distract from higher order outcomes. And a lack of easy-to-use tools makes it hard for the average non-technical user to manage the process.
So how can you drive an effective performance management program? It all starts with creating the right KPIs and structuring the performance metrics that matter.
Join Danny Fuchs, Managing Partner at HR&A, the industry-leading consulting firm that brings 40 years of collective experience setting organizations up for success in the field of public sector performance management, and Charlie Francis, former Finance Director at City of Sausalito, CA and current Director of Government Finance Solutions at OpenGov, for an interactive workshop on how you can achieve world-class performance management.
At the conclusion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
- Understand how to develop the right KPIs for their organization
- Evaluate the effectiveness of performance measurement in their own agency
- Engage leaders in their organization to gain alignment on the value of performance management
