FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FCG’s Executive Consultant Ted Kniker to Present a Workshop in DC at September 2007 Conference
FCG’s Executive Consultant Ted Kniker’s abstract on developing a strategic plan that integrates prioritizing resources and measuring performance has been selected by the Advanced Learning Institute for presentation at its Performance Measurement for Government Conference to be held September 17-20, 2007, in Washington, DC.
“In an environment of ‘do more with less,’ federal managers often don’t have the time, resources, or expertise to develop strategic plans for their programs,” Ted said. “If they do, they often don’t have performance measurement and evaluation built in from the beginning – only developing these as management after thoughts.”
In his workshop, Ted will show managers how to plan, deploy and evaluate in a world that is in constant change and unpredictable. Participants will learn a framework for developing workable and dynamic strategic plans that integrate resource prioritization and performance measurement.
Participants will work on developing their own strategic plans for their programs and will learn:
- How to plan in an unpredictable environment
- Different types of results
- Domains of influence and impact
- How to develop measures using the different types of results and domains
- How to create an evaluation strategy
- How to create a culture of measurement
