Program Performance

Plan, Measure, Evaluate and Budget for Results.

Plan
Implementing a strong strategic plan that clearly defines the mission and goals of your organization is the first step to improving performance. The Performance Institute offers in-depth training on how to best formulate a successful strategic plan molded to your agency, and provides the tools and techniques to see it through.

Measure
Performance measures are critical to gauging agency progress and ensuring that all elements of a strategic plan are producing results. These performance measures must track “outcomes” of government programs, as well as provide efficiency and quality metrics for day-to-day management decision making.

Budget
With budgets under increasing scrutiny at all levels of government, program managers are required to justify budgets with clear performance measures and performance benchmarks. The Institute\’s trainings provide clear methods for ensuring that your budget and strategic plan are working together.

Manage
Effective performance planning and measurement have become essential in all aspects of government management. The Performance Institute provides the latest best-practice strategies and tools in order to manage program resources efficiently, and to produce tangible results in your agency.

Audit
The push is on for greater transparency and integrity in program management and accounting in government. Performance audits are now being conducted that integrate financial management and program performance into a single report on the results of individual government programs.

Report
Performance reports are essential in order to justify program spending and promote the case for future programs, but managing the performance data being collected and providing meaningful and accurate information has become a big challenge. Trainings at The Institute help you get the most out of the measures and create useful and comprehensive reports.
