LGTI-Performance Measures: Making Informed Decisions in a Tough Economy

Performance measures allow policy makers, managers, and citizens to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of government services. This tool enables local governments to set goals and standards, detect and correct problems, document accomplishments as well as manage and improve processes. The use of performance measures in local government is driven by increased citizen demand for government accountability and by local elected officials that want performance related information to assist in program evaluation and resource allocation decisions.

At the one day workshop participants will learn:

·         How to create and implement a performance measurement tool that meets the needs of their community;

·         How to engage citizens in the process;

·         How to design and use community surveys; and

·         How to use performance measures to make budget decisions and to educate citizens.

This workshop is will take performance measurements from complexity to clarity by providing you with knowledge necessary to implement or improve a performance measures in your community.
