One-day Workshop: Peformance Measurement
Performance measurement is more than just a requirement for meeting public accountability obligations. It is a management tool that supports planning and decision-making by providing timely information on whether programs are contributing to intended social and economic outcomes.
Whether or not you are directly involved in performance measurement, it is important to understand how performance measurement frameworks are built, how they add value to decision-making, and what their limitations are.
Through presentations, interactive sessions and small-group work, this seminar describes, analyzes and gives you opportunities to work with basic concepts of performance measurement. Emphasis is placed on the practical as opposed to the theoretical.
Questions discussed include:
- what are the basic steps to developing performance measures?
- what are the major challenges when developing performance measures?
- what are the key characteristics of a good performance measure?
- what is a logic model and why is it useful?
- what is the link between performance measurement and evaluation?
- what is the link between performance measurement and risk assessment?
