5.1 Best Practices

  • Set defined performance and success metrics (including baselines and targets) at the beginning of the program to be able to measure and communicate the benefits intended and ultimately achieved
  • Measure performance against key performance indicators (KPIs) set in Phase 1, internal and external standards including, and the Federal Integrated Business Framework (FIBF) Performance Management Framework
  • Correctly set expectations of performance noting that while savings often are realized from shared support arrangements, the efficiencies do not appear immediately and in the short-run may appear to be more costly during the stabilization period
