Developing performance indicators to measure the impact of services on citizens


To deliver outstanding outcomes for citizens, it is essential for government agencies to effectively measure the impact of new and existing policies and programs. To achieve this, government agencies that were once focused on measuring outputs will need to undertake a significant transformation to become outcomes focused.
