If leading performance management at your agency is one of your roles or you are looking for a better approach to strengthen performance management at the program level, this session is for you. Getting program level personnel involved in understanding how performance management is a key driver for success of their programs. Participants will leave this session with an understanding of the need to get programs to contribute the development of a performance management system and resources for making progress on performance management. While many programs have adopted logic models to evaluate programs, staff may miss opportunities to align these models with the agency performance management system. This session will include an example of assessing the performance management system at the program level from the Idaho Division of Public Health. Participants will have an opportunity to see how a PM matrix tool helps to align programmatic efforts with the agency performance management system.
