…no organization can survive without increasing its own pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

...the key metric for performance is not financial in nature, but is rather mission effectiveness recognizing that an organization may have many specific sub-missions or departmental missions within the whole….with success of performance unique to the unit and the organization as a whole.


Topics comments l.jpg
Topics/Comments pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

  • Drivers of change

Simplifying the planning l.jpg
Simplifying the pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical. planning…

1) Breaking complexity into smaller pieces and assigning chunks to specialized individuals or units (initiatives)

2) Creating a strategy for public interest including

  • Defining goals and intermediate long/short-term objectives

  • Carrying out a SWOT analysis

  • Imagining and playing scenarios

  • Implementing asset management strategies

  • Identifying measurable performance indicators

  • Drawing up an action timetable, etc.


And by asking the right question l.jpg
and, by asking the pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical. RIGHT question…

  • Whom do you serve and what do they want to do? (customers/clients/organization…big picture)

  • What are the core systems, services, and support provided?(CORE systems, services, support)

  • What is the best way to provide the services (processes)

  • How do we know we are doing a good job? (metrics)

  • What is the best way to organize? (structure)

    NOTE: sequence of questions extremely important: need to reverse traditional approach by putting focus on customers…worrying about organizational structure and reporting lines is mistake!

Requires pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical. rethinking approach to planning for the core…. based on move toward a Reframing approach, i.e., structural, political, human resource or symbolic frame(s)…and the

  • Business Direction….values, mission, vision, goals

  • Alignment….capabilities (personally tailored, quality, commodity, novelty)

  • Market Positioning…value proposition to customers

  • Capabilities Positioning…issue of product and process stable or dynamic

Descriptors

  • Inclusive, bilateral, negotiated written agreement focused on long-term planning

  • Venue for establishing priorities; initiative- based

  • Cyclical, iterative, annual

  • Alignment of unit and organizational goals and strategies

  • Provides accountability through specific performance and outcome measures tied to initiatives

  • Positions actions, outcomes, performance expectations; respect responsibilities; funding sources in context of university long-range goals and performance expectations; partnerships/ codicils providing ‘shared responsibility’.


Types of initiatives e g l.jpg
Types of Initiatives (e.g.) pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

  • Those contributing to achievement of university goals (e.g., diversity, partnerships, global economy)

  • Those contributing to the university’s planning for ‘student learning in a technology-rich environment’

  • Those contributing to achievement of unit-specific goals

  • Those improving the unit’s performance on selected performance measures

  • Those supporting established targets for growth, recruitment, retention, increased research funding, etc


Levels of negotiated involvement l.jpg

Initiatives l.jpg
Initiatives pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

Some initiatives may take a year,…others may take two or more years to complete. The initiatives may also:

a) be carried forward from a previous compact and/or new ones introduced in the current cycle;

b) describe ‘new’ activities and/or improve the quality and effectiveness of existing activities such as infrastructure improvements.

c) Require new funding and/or redirect existing resources.


Compact plan format l.jpg
Compact Plan Format pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

  • Short title

  • List of university goals supported by the proposed initiatives

  • Clear description of each initiative and the university and unit objectives to be achieved by implementing the initiative

  • Strategies for implementing the initiative(s) including:

    • Action to be taken

    • Responsible individual(s)

    • Deliverables

    • Implementation schedule

    • Estimated cost(s)

  • Clear description of the desired outcomes of the initiative and how outcomes will be assessed/measured; include baseline comparisons

  • Prioritization of the initiatives on financial spreadsheet reflecting request, match, codicil/partnership contribution


Slide19 l.jpg

“Performance” pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical. in this context means answering

the question…

“How well is the organization/unit doing its mission?”

“Metrics of performance” answer the question…

“How do you know how well the organization/unit is doing?”


Performance metrics should provide quantitative gains in l.jpg
Performance metrics pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical. should provide quantitative gains in:

  • Customer satisfaction

  • Organizational performance

  • Workforce excellence… with key elements addressing:

    • Alignment with organizational mission

    • Quality of product

    • Timely delivery

    • Cost reduction and/or avoidance

    • Cycle time reduction

    • Customer satisfaction

    • Meeting organization requirements (e.g., fiscal reporting)

    • Meeting commitments


And the quality of the metric can be assessed by the smart test l.jpg
…and the quality of the metric can be assessed by the pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical. SMART test…

S = Specific: clear and focused to avoid misinterpretation; should include the measure assumptions and definitions

M = Measurable: can be quantified and compared to other data; allow for possible statistical analysis

A = Attainable:achievable, reasonable, and credible under conditions expected and articulated (assumptions)

R = Realistic: fits into the organization’s constraints and is cost-effective

T = Timely:doable within the time frame given.


Types of metrics l.jpg
Types of Metrics pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

  • Trending against known standards: the standards may come from either internal or external sources and may include benchmarks

  • Trending with standards to be established: usually this type of metric is used in conjunction with establishing a baseline

  • Milestones achieved.


Yes no metrics l.jpg
Yes/No pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical. Metrics

Yes/No metrics are used in certain situations usually involving establishing trends, baselines, or targets, or in start-up cases. Because there is no valid calibration of the level of performance for this type of measure, they should be used sparingly. Examples:

  • Establish/implement a system

  • System is in place (without regard to effectiveness)

  • Analysis is performed (without criteria)

  • Reporting achieved (without analyses)

  • Threshold achieved (arbitrary standards)


Quality of metrics l.jpg
Quality of Metrics pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

  • Is the metric objectively measurable?

  • Does the metric include a clear statement of the end results expected?

  • Does the metric support customer requirements, including compliance issues where appropriate?

  • Does the metric focus on effectiveness and/or efficiency of the system being measured?

  • Does the metric allow for meaningful trend or statistical analysis?

  • Have appropriate industry or other external stands been applied?

Year 1 result = 52%

Percent of Agreeable Responses


Cont quality of metrics l.jpg
Cont. Quality of Metrics pace of decision-making…hence a increased emphasis on realistic planning is critical.

  • Does the metric include milestones and/or indicators to express qualitative criteria?

  • Are the metrics challenging but at the same time attainable?

  • Are assumptions and definitions specified for what constitutes satisfactory performance?

  • Have those who are responsible for the performance being measured been fully involved in the development of the metric?

  • Has the metric been mutually agreed upon by you and your customer?

Percentage of Same-Day Dispatching of Presorted Mail


Slide28 l.jpg
…the first step in developing performance metrics is to involve the people who are responsible for the work to be measured, then…

  • Identify critical work processes and customer requirements

  • Identify critical results desired and align them to customer requirements

  • Develop measurements for the critical work processes or critical results

  • Establish performance goals, standards, or benchmarks.


Slide29 l.jpg
and…before one begins developing metrics, ask some key questions regarding planning for the core including:

  • Which processes are most important now and why?

  • Who will be the change champion(s)?

  • Who are the stakeholders?

  • What is the business culture of the company and what are its strengths?

  • What subcultures exist and what are their strengths?

  • What cultural attributes are weak or will interfere with the change?

  • What will be the toughest changes and how will they be addressed? How ‘ready’ is the organization to change?
