Speaking On:
Driving organisation performance in the National Blood Authority

Increasing public sector accountability, efficiency & responsiveness to community needs

Most government departments and agencies are lacking effective key performance indicators to assess program effectiveness. Many entities continue to find it difficult to design and implement KPIs that are measureable, achievable, relevant and timed. In times of ongoing budget difficulty, the need to develop key performance indicators that reflect overall strategy and outcomes is crucial.

 

Bringing together senior leaders in performance, auditing, governance, planning and strategy, this conference is a must for all agencies looking to reach optimum productivity, efficiency and transparency.
