Outcomes Theory Knowledge Base
A comprehensive knowledge platform worth visiting
: The Outcomes Theory Knowledge Base is being developed by Dr Paul Duignan, an international outcomes, evaluation and strategic expert. As he puts it himself: “Stakeholders, funders, decision-makers and the media are increasingly demanding that organizations ‘prove that they work’ if they are to continue to receive funding and support. To get into the ‘what works’ game (as every project, group, organization and government is currently trying to do), we all need a clear conceptual framework for talking about outcomes. Outcomes theory provides that framework. It doesn’t matter what sector or topic you are involved in, outcomes theory has something to say to you if your job involves working with any aspect of outcomes thinking”.

Importance of Performance Management Process & Best Practices To Optimize Monitoring Performance Work Reviews/Feedback and Goal Management – A Guide
The purpose of this guide is to provide concrete guidelines and practical steps that can be used to improve the performance management processes at your organization… While human resources professionals clearly understand the importance of optimal performance management, they often face significant internal obstacles. When someone mentions performance management or reviews at your organization, what is the typical response? Do employees and managers alike cringe? Do they avoid performance management related tasks? Do visions of tracking down incomplete appraisal forms come to mind? This can be changed. Forward thinking companies are taking steps to successfully address this negative view of performance management. They are implementing innovative solutions that ensure processes deliver real results and improve performance.

Comparing Balanced Scorecard and Results Based Management Frameworks
This paper compares and contrasts two of the most widely adopted Performance Management (PM) frameworks – Balanced Scorecard and Results-Based Management. It reviews the two frameworks’ independent origins and separate evolutionary paths, and examines the resulting differences in practical application. Two case studies are presented, one examining Results- Based Management implementation within a global UN agency, the other describing work to build a 3rd Generation Balanced Scorecard within a Middle Eastern government ministry. The authors propose that the two frameworks are converging in terms of the approaches used for framework design and implementation.

Taking Measure: Moving from Process to Practice in Performance Management, 28 pages, 2013.
Between March and July 2013, the Partnership for Public Service* and Grant Thornton’s Public Sector*  practice interviewed more than 50 PIOs and deputy PIOs, held three focus groups and administered a survey on performance management to determine whether performance leaders thought their agencies were making progress on improving performance. This report is the output of that survey.
The Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRA Modernization Act) provided a strong impetus for change in how agencies measured and monitored performance. They have had to create chief operating officer (COO) and performance improvement officer (PIO) positions, and they are required to meet regularly to review their progress. The PIO is expected to take fundamental responsibility for using data to assess and enhance performance and often works in tandem with the agency’s COO and deputy secretary, demonstrating the importance agencies place on performance improvement.

* The Partnership for Public Service is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to revitalize the US federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works. Grant Thornton’s Global Public Sector practice helps government executives maximize performance and efficiency in the face of tightening budgets and increased demand for services.
