Performance Management: An Analytical Framework
- 571 Downloads
This chapter focuses on current understandings of performance management in the implementation of policy, with particular reference to climate initiatives. The chapter draws on research examining international experience in the development and implementation of performance systems. The focus will be on presenting the theoretical anchors necessary for effective performance management to establish an analytical framework to examine management practices for implementing climate policy by city governments. The framework will provide an analytical tool to help place city governments within a model of engagement with performance management in the implementation of climate policy. The model will help to establish insights for city governments seeking improvements to management and the measurable achievement of desired climate outcomes.
