Book: Performance Measurement for Managing Local Government

04 May 2020 4:29 PM | MNEA admin (Administrator)

The stakes have never been higher for effective, efficiently run local governments.

We want to help.

While evaluating performance management—the use of performance information for management purposes—managers and analysts sometimes skip too quickly through the intricacies of good performance measurement.

That's where Performance Measurement for Managing Local Government comes in. It answers the persistent questions that confront everyone who has ever tried to design measures, evaluate measures, or make measures the management tools they are supposed to be. This book guides you toward proper design of measures, illustrates common errors and ways to avoid them, offers tips, and even provides sets of suitable measures on which to build.

In other words—before tackling performance management, read this book first.

Please consult the attached flyer for more detailed information, including testimonials and full contents.
