About Policy performance
Policy Performance was initiated in February 2018 to provide expert support to public sector leaders and managers on shaping and overseeing their priority projects and directions.
Working across all phases of the policy cycle, Policy Performance helps to efficiently and effectively plan, implement and evaluate public sector policies and outcomes.
The business name reflects a desire to learn from evidence. Decision-makers need to know when, whether and how policies are performing. Better information helps to support good programs to rollout more broadly, while identifying and managing underperformance. Alternate interventions may be considered to achieve similar policy goals.
Policy - a course of action adopted and pursued by a government, party, ruler, statesman... any course of action adopted as advantageous or expedient
Performance - a_the execution of an action... something accomplished.
b_the manner in which a mechanism performs.
