​​Whacover art.jpgt’s hindering your organization from implementing effective performance management?

While performance management can be an uncomfortable topic in public health, it doesn’t have to be. Implementing performance management is not easy, but it is necessary for organizational and systems improvement.


The Public Health Foundation (PHF) is pleased to announce the availability of Collaborative Performance Management for Public Health: A Practical Guide through PHF's Learning Resource Center. In the book, authors Amanda E. McCarty, Sonja M. Armbruster, and John W. Moran clarify what public health performance management is and is not. They make a strong case for why it is needed to tackle the long-standing health issues plaguing communities and states. In doing so, they advocate for more thoughtful use of the resources already available in the organization - relying on public health leadership to work with well- trained staff to manage their own organizational performance.


To be broadly accepted within public health, performance management concepts and models have to be framed and populated with public health examples. This book offers a wealth of practical insights and case studies that may be immediately applied to public health organizations, from assessing an organization’s needs, introducing a performance management system to the organization, developing an organization’s goals and targets, to implementing sound performance management systems and plans.


If you are a public health leader or employee concerned with maximizing the health impact of scarce resources – you need this book.
