Performance Measurement for Improved Results

Performance measurement enables organizations to define and use specific indicators to continually measure how well services or programs are leading to the desired results. Led by Paul Favaro, this two-day Performance Measurement workshop will provide a step-by-step approach to developing a results-based performance measurement system.  The workshop will also focus on using the results for system and program improvement.

Detailed course materials, worksheets, and other tools will be provided to help you plan your program’s outcome measurement system.  Numerous examples of performance indicators and outcome measures will be used to inspire participants to effectively improve and communicate their program results.

Survey Design

This two-day intermediate level survey design course will build your capacity to plan and manage surveys. By the end of this workshop you should have a practical and comprehensive understanding of the overall survey process.Using a hands-on approach, you will learn how to plan a survey, choose an appropriate methodology, develop survey questions and apply sampling procedures. Through a series of case studies, you will also gain understanding about how to implement and manage a survey and an overview of analyzing and using the results of survey research.

This course is at the intermediate level and requires a basic understanding of evaluation terms and methodology. Completion of the CES Essential Skills Series, which is regularly offered by the Ontario Chapter, is highly recommended.
