A fundamental rethinking about the role of government is taking place in the public sector. National, state and local governments are being challenged to reinvent, deregulate, privatize and submit to performance tests and measures, shifting the focus from simple compliance with bureaucratic rules to improved organizational results, thereby providing more effective service to the public by combining the goals of accountability and improvement.

  • Link performance measurement indicators to budgeting and human resource planning,
  • Definitively measure the effectiveness of organizational outcomes, and
  • Provide cutting-edge management strategies to leaders in the public sector.
