Summary
Citizens are demanding improved government services and better stewardship of public resources. To respond to these demands, the federal government is adopting the following principles of performance-based management: (1) shifting the focus of government performance and accountability away from a preoccupation with activities, such as grants or inspections; (2) focusing on the results or outcomes of those activities, such as real gains in safety, health, and living standards; and (3) systematically integrating the results the government intends to achieve with organizational structures, budgets, program and service delivery strategies, the use of technology, and human capital strategies and practices. The cornerstone of efforts to implement performance-based management is the adoption of a results orientation. However, because adopting a results orientation requires a cultural transformation, many agencies continue to struggle to implement performance-based management. Not surprisingly, since agencies are in the early years of undertaking the changes that performance-based management entails, progress across government has been uneven. To help speed this progress and its uniform adoption, the following questions have been developed to determine whether candidates have the skills and knowledge necessary to implement the basic tenets of performance-based management
