Are you delivering impact & value for citizens

With the Independent Review of the APS, the 2018 Independent Review of the PGPA Act, and the Morrison Government all putting a renewed focus on increasing the effectiveness of the Australian Public Service, there is increasing pressure on government departments and agencies to set clear performance indicators with stronger frameworks to deliver real outcomes for citizens. This means a major shift away from measuring outputs, and a new focus on impact or what is being achieved.

The Enhancing Government Outcomes and Performance Measurement conference is a unique opportunity to learn from best practice and hear strategic recommendations in performance measurement and outcomes-based approaches. It will provide a practical platform for improvement for public sector organisations from across Australia. You will take away essential insights to drive a cultural transformation to embed outcomes within your organisation and strategies to better measure the impact of programs and policies on your stakeholders.
