Performance measurement dimensions
Performance measurement in government is considered in the broadest sense to include metrics for all the key aspects of program/service delivery, tailored to each function, encompassing:
- Outcomes and results achieved
- Timely and responsive services
- Stakeholder relationships/client satisfaction
- Client demand/ workload
- People/ workplace health.
Identify key dimensions and indicators that best measure the performance of an organization (typically called a performance measurement framework)
Decide how the performance data will be collected, building on existing data sources to the extent possible, and identify the major data gaps (the data collection plan)
Collect and report the performance data, ideally using automated tools as part of ongoing delivery processes
Monitor and assess the performance results and identify improvement opportunities (this often leads to further refinements in the performance indicators and data sources).
