It’s been a little while, but I have a few upcoming posts on performance management. In the meantime, here are a few upcoming events that are of relevance in the government performance management realm:
The Community Indicators Consortium (CIC) holds its international conference in Bellevue, Washington this year on Oct 1-2. CIC is a great group and Ben Warner runs a great blog on Community Indicators for anyone interested in this area. Very similar to performance metrics and from a slightly more citizen-centric standpoint.
The Association of Government Accountants (or is it Accountability?) holds its Performance Management Conference on Nov 5-6 in Seattle, Washington. I plan to be there along with all the other party people involved in performance management.
If anyone made it to the ICMA conference this week, feel free to chime in with some comments. I missed it and am curious how prevalent performance was discussed.
Finally, the Performance Management Commission released its Performance Management Framework for public review and as expected, it’s too long! Who’s going to read this thing when it’s more than 30 pages? It’s too bad because there are a lot of great concepts in it. For anyone who doesn’t have the time to read such a document, I still advocate my own framework.
