Many organizations are attempting to develop a performance management infrastructure to improve client outcomes and better allocate resources. However, there is little guidance on what this infrastructure should look like, how it can be developed and sustained over time, and how to overcome the challenges that occur while building evaluation capacity within an organization.


Nonprofit practitioners that are faced with questions such as how to get started with data collection, how to develop performance management processes, which people should be at the table, or how to create a data-based decision-making environment will benefit greatly from this webinar.


The presenters will discuss their experiences working with a wide range of organizations to implement the ‘performance management cycle’ over time and how data and information can be used to improve services for clients, program quality, and overall organizational effectiveness.


This is part of a PerformWell series on performance management methods and techniques, hosted by members of the PerformWell partner organizations.
