Overcoming the Barriers to Performance Measurement

Watch Now

Few concepts have swept public-administration circles like performance management has. But as the saying goes, you can't manage what you don't measure. While many governments say they're committed to tracking their performance and managing accordingly, few have been able to really deliver. One of the weakest links in performance management is performance measurement.

Now, measuring and managing organizational performance is now more feasible than ever. As public agencies of all sizes face budgetary strains and shortfalls, every dollar and minute must go further. Quick access to relevant performance indicators is now a must have, not just a nice to have.

Watch this video to learn practical strategies for overcoming the barriers to performance measurement and how new technologies are helping agencies put the information they need at their fingertips.

In this video, you will learn:

  • How to asses your current operational performance program.
  • Practical advice for beginning or advancing a performance management initiative.
  • How OpenGov Performance Measures helps teams understand operational trends.
  • Why using one integrated performance measurement solution improves outcomes.
