Performance Measurement and Evaluation (P237)
This course will be delivered as a live, instructor-led session online – click here.
A policy is created; a program designed and then launched. What comes next? First comes short term performance measurement which seeks to answer questions around efficiency: “How are we doing?” and “What needs improvement?” Then, after a longer period, normally five years, it is time for an evaluation to assess effectiveness, which seeks to answer “How did we do? and “Were we successful?”
Over time, various levels of governments have parceled off performance measurement and evaluation to the back corner of a department, often separating it from the specific program under review. This workshop seeks to provide policy analysts and program and community managers with a set of integral tools to assess their own programs and make adjustments as the need arises. The goal is increased efficiency, effectiveness, and economy.
