Workshops - Using Information for Decision-Making

Public sector managers constantly make decisions – about staff, budgets, programs. On what basis should these decisions be made? What matters, and what does not?

 

Mark Schacter offers half-day workshops that provide an overview of techniques, concepts and challenges related to gathering, analyzing and using information for decision-making. The workshops focus on three key sources of program-related information:
 

- performance measurement;

- program evaluation;

- risk assessment

 

Here is what participants said about recent offerings of "Using Information for Decision-Making":

and risk assessment.
