  • I’m here to tell you what performance measures are, why they’re so important to us and to you. I’m here to introduce myself as a resource for you today. What are performance measures? They’re listed in the solicitation as the data to be colleted from grantees. We’re not collecting the data for a gotcha exercise.. We’re trying to use the information grantees gather to make better decisions which will affect you at the state and local level. It’s about collecting information to compile for “brag-worthy” reports to superiors, those who make funding, programmatic decisions, etc. Your success is our success. We want information to make good decisions to help you succeed. We may have to make some course corrections if the outcomes of the program aren’t what we expected, maybe grantees need more TA, etc. Need information before we can best help you. We understand that when you’re in the field doing the work of the grant, it’s not always easy to understand the connection between reporting information and how that affects the program. It may seem like a circuitous route, but I’d like to explain the connection to you.
  • We’re not asking for data for fun; we don’t want to require you to report if we’re not going to analyze or report. You’re not wasting time by ensuring the data is accurately collected. GPRA enacted in ’93 to encourage greater accountability within the government for results Ensures that programs are managed in ways to maximize performance, minimize cost, achieve desired results PART: Starting in 2002, Office of Management and Budget developed this tool to assess and improve performance. Set of questions that provide consistent analysis across government programs. Links performance to budget decisions, informs management actions, legislative proposals. For more information, see the White House’s website, or go to Programs that don’t demonstrate results do not get funding recommendations. Justification for BJA’s request for funding in President’s budget. MD&A: concise description of mission, financial position, condition, and program performance. Reported to Main Justice, White House. Data submitted subject to an audit during annual DOJ-wide audit.
  • The performance measures have their own section of GMS. The first 7 questions are the same for all programs, all states, BJA-wide. The following questions are program specific and the answers must be contained in the answer fields. Do not attach a narrative to GMS in place of answering the questions. If the questions do not apply, please put 0 and then explain in the narrative question. Do not put letters in the answer fields. Will make it easier to interpret and aggregate the data. State Policy Advisors will review the reports and if incomplete or in the wrong format, they’ll click on the Change Request button, which will send you an email requesting changes. Until your SPA is satisfied with your progress report, you will not be able to submit your next report. If your report is delinquent, the funds will be frozen. We’ll report results on our website, at our regional conferences, release to evaluators. Data belongs to the public, so once it is in a good format, we will release it.

    2. 2. <ul><li>“ Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>—H. James Harrington </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. WHY evaluate performance? <ul><li>Information is c ontrol </li></ul><ul><li>Provides feedback to improve program performance </li></ul><ul><li>Provides information for resource allocation </li></ul><ul><li>Enables effective planning </li></ul><ul><li>Tests generalizations based on experiences and assumptions </li></ul><ul><li>Market and develop support among funding bodies, constituents, and staff. </li></ul>

    5. 5. Process vs. Impact Evaluations <ul><li>Process evaluations focus on how the initiative was executed; the activities, efforts, and workflow associated with the response. Process evaluations ask whether the response occurred as planned, and whether all components worked as intended. Fundamentally, a process evaluation posits the question, “Are we doing the thing right?” </li></ul><ul><li>Impact evaluations focus on the outcome (the what ) of the initiative; the output (products and services) and outcome (results, accomplishment, impact). Did the problem decline or cease? And if so, was the response the proximate cause of the decline? Fundamentally, the impact evaluation posits the question, “Are we doing the right thing(s)?” </li></ul>
    6. 6. Balanced Scorecard <ul><li>Originally developed in business by Kaplan & Norton </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Financial – How do we look to stakeholders? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Customer – How well do we satisfy our internal and external customers’ needs? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Internal Business Process – How well do we perform at key internal business processes? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning and Growth – Are we able to sustain innovation, change, and continuous improvement? </li></ul></ul>

    17. 17. JNET: Efficient and Effective ROI <ul><li>PennDOT (DMV) Certified Drivers History via JNET </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In 2003, the PennDOT processed 157,840 certified driving history requests for local police, district attorneys, and the Courts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>One clear performance measure is highlighted by the dramatic reduction in processing costs for PennDOT. The personnel cost metric is based on the time required to process a paper copy of the driver history request, including the manual application of an embossed certification seal. PennDOT calculates their personnel cost at $1.50 per certified history processed, and when incorporating a combined printing and mailing cost of $.50 per copy, the total cost to manually generate a certified driver history equates to $2.00 per request . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>During August 2006, the 56,126 certified driving history requests process by JNET saved PennDOT $112,252 in monthly operating expenses. Only 4767 were processed in the traditional fashion. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PennDOT has reallocated personnel to support and process other areas of business such as ‘paid’ requests from individual citizens and pre-employment screeners. </li></ul></ul>
    18. 18. Critical Assumptions <ul><li>Baseline data exist regarding current or historical performance of the system </li></ul><ul><li>Access, ability and willingness to capture data regarding on-going performance </li></ul><ul><li>Timely, accurate and complete data collection </li></ul><ul><li>Appropriate and sufficiently detailed analysis techniques </li></ul><ul><li>Staff to conduct the analysis and reports </li></ul><ul><li>Effective communication mechanisms to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor on-going baseline performance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Constantly assess the impact and operations </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Political will and operational capacity to do something as a result of what the measures show! </li></ul>
    19. 19. Performance Dashboards <ul><li>What we’re NOT talking about: </li></ul>The threat level in the airline sector is HIGH or Orange 3/1/07
    20. 20. What we ARE talking about…
    21. 21. Sample Performance Dashboard Draft dashboard assessing performance on a series of dimensions that have been agreed by key decisionmakers. This requires effective data collection and routine reporting from operational systems in place throughout the County and agreement that we’re going to do something with the data in order to respond to critical performance elements.
    22. 23. Establishing a Performance Management Program The Six Steps to Establishing a Performance-Based Management Program Source: Will Artley, DJ Ellison and Bill Kennedy, The Performance-Based Management Handbook, Volume 1: Establishing and Maintaining a Performance-Based Management Program (Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Energy, 2001)
    23. 24. Outcomes and performance measures <ul><li>Outcomes are the benefits or results gained by reaching goals, achieving objectives and resolving strategic issues </li></ul><ul><li>Performance Measures are specific, measurable, time-bound expressions of future accomplishment that relate to goals, objectives and strategic initiatives </li></ul><ul><li>Goals, objectives and strategic initiatives should ideally lead to outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Pragmatic performance measurement planners recognize that not all things that need to be measured can always be empirically linked to outcomes. </li></ul>
    24. 25. It is important that performance measures be based on criteria that correspond to desired outcomes; however, it is often difficult or even impossible to obtain objective measures of certain key outcomes . Not all outcomes easily lend themselves to measurement Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted. — Albert Einstein
    25. 26. Populated logic model Program Logic Model and Chain of Events Category Program Feature and Activity Initial Outcomes Intermediate Outcomes Intermediate Outcomes II Final Outcomes Reached Measures Rap sheet information of appropriate scope, timeliness, accuracy and ease of use available to magistrate judge at first court appearance/bond hearing 1. Greater use of Rap sheet information when setting bail/bond and conditions of release 1.More appropriate conditions of release and establishment of bail/bond appropriate to both the arrest charges and the criminal history and past warrant information 1. Fewer crimes committed by those awaiting trial 2. Fewer failures to appear 3. More timely disposition of criminal cases <ul><li>Enhanced justice process </li></ul><ul><li>2. Positive influence on lessening total number of crimes committed </li></ul>
    26. 27. Use scenario approach to reach agreement and define performance <ul><li>Bring stakeholders together to reach consensus on the desired state of integration </li></ul><ul><li>Define the current state of integration (baseline) </li></ul><ul><li>Quantify gap between current state and desired state </li></ul><ul><li>Define desired outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Develop objectives and performance measures that can be linked to desired outcomes </li></ul>
    27. 28. Stakeholders must agree on performance measures in advance <ul><li>Perceived performance is an agreed-upon construct </li></ul><ul><li>Criteria for defining performance should be negotiated by stakeholders (and governing body) prior to developing measures </li></ul><ul><li>Stakeholders will value outcomes differently depending on their role within (or relative to) the justice enterprise </li></ul>
    28. 29. Characteristics of good measures <ul><li>Measures link back to goals, objectives and mission statements </li></ul><ul><li>Measures drive the right behavior from employees, partners and consultants </li></ul><ul><li>Collecting data on measures is feasible and cost effective </li></ul><ul><li>Measures are understood by most employees </li></ul><ul><li>Measures lend themselves to being tracked on an ongoing basis so that drops in performance can be detected when there is time to do something about it. </li></ul><ul><li>Measures represent aspects of performance that we can actually change </li></ul>
    29. 30. Performance measurement caveats <ul><li>Most people (including your employees and consultants) can learn to make measures come out the way they think you want them to, without actually improving a process </li></ul><ul><li>Always question the measures you’ve defined, keeping in mind that the people applying them could find ways of boosting the measures without really improving anything </li></ul><ul><li>Test each measure to determine if it operates as expected. Does it always go one way when things get better and the other when things get worse? </li></ul>
    30. 31. The Russian Nail <ul><li>Manipulating a single metric allowed Soviet managers to appear successful even though their efforts did not always lead to expected outcomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Success was typically measured by singular metrics of gross output, such as weight, quantity, square feet, or surface area. Gross output indicators played havoc with assortments, sizes, quality, etc., and frequently resulted in products like Khrushchev’s chandeliers – so heavy “that they pull the ceilings down on our heads.” </li></ul><ul><li>A famous Soviet cartoon depicted the manager of a nail factory being given the Order of Lenin for exceeding his tonnage. Two giant cranes were pictured holding up one giant nail. </li></ul>My Time with Soviet Economics by Paul Craig Roberts (Published in The Independent Review, v.VII, n.2, Fall 2002,pp. 259– 264.)
    31. 32. Behavior driven the wrong way <ul><li>The Soviet Union wasted billions searching for oil because it rewarded drilling crews on the basis of the number of feet drilled. Because it is easier to drill many shallow wells than a few deep wells, drillers drilled lots of shallow wells, regardless of what was advisable geologically. </li></ul><ul><li>The 1983 Chicago Sun Times article reported a Soviet hospital that had turned away a seriously ill patient because &quot;they were nearing their yearly quota for patient deaths—and would be criticized by authorities if they exceeded it.&quot; </li></ul>
    32. 33. Family of related measures <ul><li>Produce x widgets per hour </li></ul><ul><li>Produce x widgets per hour without exceeding y dollars </li></ul><ul><li>Produce x widgets per hour without exceeding y dollars with only one full-time employee </li></ul><ul><li>Produce x widgets per hour without exceeding y dollars and with only one full-time employee and generating z units of waste </li></ul><ul><li>Produce x widgets per hour without exceeding y dollars with only one full-time employee and generating z units of waste and at a zero defect rate </li></ul><ul><li>Produce x widgets per hour without exceeding y dollars with only one full-time employee and generating z units of waste and at a zero defect rate and without contributing to global warming </li></ul>
    33. 34. The “widget” family <ul><li>Number produced within specified time period </li></ul><ul><li>Cost of producing widgets </li></ul><ul><li>People required </li></ul><ul><li>Waste generated </li></ul><ul><li>Defect rate </li></ul><ul><li>CO 2 produced </li></ul>
    34. 35. Specific Justice Example
    35. 36. Legislatively imposed measure Number of calls from users requesting assistance (lower number indicates superior performance)
    36. 37. Measure: Length of time to resolve a call for service and the quality of service call resolution as measured by the following two dimensions: 1. Average time from the opening of a service ticket to the closing of a service ticket. JID will also report the median and standard deviation with the average. 2. The quality of service as measured by a regular user surveys designed to measure the quality of the service provided to the caller. Survey respondents are selected randomly Replacement multi-dimensional measure
    37. 38. Strategic Goal 3: Identify and recommend cost effective biometric identification applications Objective 3.1: By September 2004, research, identify, and recommend technological applications that support biometrics for rapid identification. Objective 3.2: By September 2004, research, identify, and evaluate the costs and benefits of biometric identification applications. Outcomes: • Increased knowledge of biometric technologies • Improved cost-effective biometric identification solutions Performance Measures: • Number of research projects on biometric technological solutions completed by September 2004 • Number of research projects on costs and benefits of biometrics completed by September 2004 • Number of research reports presented to the Governing Body
    38. 39. Justice performance measures <ul><li>Average law enforcement response time to calls for service for incidents involving a threat to citizen safety </li></ul><ul><li>Percent of arrest records in state repository with final dispositions </li></ul><ul><li>Number of automated information exchanges within and between criminal justice agencies </li></ul><ul><li>Number of crimes cleared using AFIS system(s) </li></ul><ul><li>Number of arrests made of wanted individuals resulting from the use of electronically available warrant and detainer information </li></ul><ul><li>Number of electronic checks of justice databases performed to identify high risk individuals </li></ul><ul><li>Average time from arrest to final case disposition for felony arrests </li></ul>
    39. 40. What makes a performance measure effective? <ul><li>First and foremost, to be effective a measure must be an incentive to a person or group of persons to change behavior in such a way that things really improve. </li></ul><ul><li>A performance measure should provide feedback to a person or group of persons. Without feedback no information is available on whether the target implied by the measure is being met. </li></ul><ul><li>A performance measure (or family of measures) should be precise and comprehensive so as to prevent the possibility of the measure being met without actually leading to expected outcomes. </li></ul>
    40. 41. Project Management Strategic Planning Performance Management Three-legged Stool
    41. 42. The role of project plans <ul><li>Project plans can augment a performance plan by ensuring that outputs are completed on time and on budget </li></ul><ul><li>Rigorous project management can ensure that tasks are actually performed before they are measured. </li></ul><ul><li>Project planning, along with strategic planning, is an essential adjunct to any performance management program. </li></ul>
    42. 43. There’s more to management than measurement If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. — Peter Drucker Drucker’s saying has convinced some managers that measurement is management, which is a bit of an overstatement; however, measurement is one of the most powerful tools in management toolbox
    43. 44. Final points <ul><li>If you don’t monitor your performance it will probably get worse. </li></ul><ul><li>You can’t devise performance measures in a vacuum, you must involve stakeholders and measure what’s valued. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t devise measures for which you lack data. </li></ul><ul><li>Performance measurement can be expensive and time consuming so why bother unless you intend to use the results to provide ongoing process feedback. </li></ul><ul><li>Errors in devising measures will lead to unexpected consequences </li></ul>
    44. 45. So inscrutable is the arrangement of causes and consequences in this world that a two-penny duty on tea, unjustly imposed in a sequestered part of it, changes the condition of its inhabitants. Thomas Jefferson
