Centre for Public Impact webinar, community of practice and knowledge base – Meaningful Measurement
17 August 2021 | 5pm – 6.15pm AEST (8am UK)
Our current system of measurement in the public sector is not working.
A focus on metrics designed for control can result in gaming, perverse incentives, and ultimately makes the job of public servants harder. For this reason, we need to shift away from using measurement as a means of control, and instead begin using it as a way to learn about complex problems and the people experiencing them, so we can adapt and improve our approach.
Join us to explore the opportunities, challenges and practicalities of an alternative approach to measurement – measurement for learning.
