Throughout the budget cycle it is critical that the county takes time to check in with departments to review performance data, analyze trends, and follow up on action items. These meetings are set up to discuss why each performance measure and objective is important, updates or changes to existing measures, and what’s working and what’s not working.

What are the meeting logistics?

What are performance priorities?

By focusing on “What’s Working?” and “What’s not Working?”, SMEs have an opportunity to discuss accomplishments, obstacles, and updates for each measure. Departments review the actual results in comparison to the fiscal year target for objectives and performance measures. These meetings are set up to ensure meaningful measurement of objectives and performance measures by gathering “Why is the measure important.”
