Invitation to Attend the 2014 PPX Symposium
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Performance and Planning Exchange (PPX) and the Symposium Planning Committee, I would like to invite you to register for the Eighteenth Annual PPX Symposium: Getting to More Effective Government.
The outcomes of public policy interventions may be at variance with what is intended. There is a need to understand the impacts and effects of programs and services in order to make improvements and informed budgetary decisions. To an unprecedented extent, policy makers have information about outcomes available to them. The data is available as are the measurement tools. The challenge is to use them productively and ensure accountability and continuous improvement.
The theme of this year’s symposium “Getting to More Effective Government,” will be explored in three interrelated streams:
• Improving Measurement – performance measurement, efficiency,
and innovative data sources (big data, data mining);
• Making Reporting More Meaningful – program performance, citizen
engagement, and data visualization; and
• Reviewing Results to Improve Performance – audit, evaluation, and
The last symposium was a great success, attracting some 200 participants and featuring high profile speakers, each considered outstanding leaders and thinkers in their fields. Similarly, the 2014 symposium will be an exciting blend of vision, leading edge thinking, lessons learned, best practices and practical applications – information essential to your work.
I look forward to welcoming you to this unique opportunity to engage, share and exchange information with others who are facing similar challenges.
