What:  Gray Horse Strategies believes having an active, practical performance management system is key to organizational success and modern leaders who can tell their story and back it up with data will have an advantage.  Attend this workshop if you want to learn why a vital performance management system is a key to the future and demonstrate, in compelling ways, that your agency is making a difference.

When:  January 17th, 2018 from 8 AM to 2:30 PM

Where: The Hotel Marshfield - Marshfield, WI

Learning Objectives: 

1. Review performance management basics, including a brief overview of how it relates to public health accreditation. 

2. Explore ways to pick meaningful process and outcome measures - the types of measures that will help you tell your story and continually improve your outcomes

3. “Workshop” examples of measures submitted in advance by participants.

4. Explore ways to tell your story to a variety of audiences through performance data

5. Sharpen your measure development skills through collaborative exercises - using examples from topic areas that are common in health departments or other service settings.

6. Learn how to talk to your unconvinced colleagues about why performance management is critical to the future

Who should attend:  The primary audience for this workshop is people that have some experience with performance management but want to help their organization rise to the next level.   The workshop is also open to new leadership staff that have minimal experience with performance management. We expect most attendees will be from local or tribal health departments, but welcome those from other public or non-profit settings. Attendees do not have to be from agencies that are accredited or actively moving toward accreditation. 

Provided:  Certificate of attendance, lunch and refreshments, and written materials.
