Dr. Beck, a presenter at IQPC’s Inaugural Performance for Government Roadshow on July 7 in Washington D.C., reveals the two major things that have been set in place under the Recovery Act: an increased emphasis on the planning and tracking of the use of funds in terms of the time phasing of obligations and expenditures, and an increased realization of the different types of performance—output and activity performance and outcome and results performance—that an organization measures. He discusses the ways that government organizations can ensure that their government performance management is linked to process improvement under the new performance policy, and he gives his advice on how to connect an organization’s objectives with the strategic objectives of the U.S. government. Using the Department of the Interior as a case study example, Dr. Beck also highlights how his organization has begun to strategically align its performance management program with the Recovery Act’s objectives. In addition, Dr. Beck shares his tips for tracking your organization’s performance management progress, including assessing whether your organization is ready to implement special software packages to track its metrics.
