We hear much about the importance of strategy, but ultimately it’s results that matter. This course links strategy—at the corporate, departmental, sectional, program, or project level—to the performance measurements that are essential in determining whether our strategy objectives are being met and in correcting or refining our aim if they aren’t.
We will begin by examining the inputs and outputs of the strategy, its required activities, and the immediate, intermediate, and ultimate results expected from it. We will see how to develop a strategic measurement framework and determine the type of data required and the appropriate sources of the data. We will address questions such as how frequently the data should be collected and who should be responsible for it. We will also look at how to analyze the data, turn it into information, and share it in clearly written reports. At every stage, we will keep in mind the complexities of the challenge: managing competing priorities, handling decision making, and determining efficiency and economy. You’ll leave the course with the tools you need to increase your organization’s efficiency and effectiveness in realizing the desired results of its strategies.
