Performance Principles &
In 2015, the Performance Improvement Council (PIC) staff set out to define the foundational aspects of performance management in government. We used our experience working with diverse Federal agencies to clarify our point of view about what it takes to not only achieve mission results, but actively manage ambitious agency and cross-governmental goals. We also reviewed our archive of interviews, summits, and working groups to reflect on what we’ve repeatedly heard from professionals who are committed to understanding, improving, and driving their agency’s performance.
We developed the P3 (Performance Principles & Practices) canvas to go beyond the legal requirements, and capture the capabilities and spirit of performance management and improvement. Anyone who has a role, whether that is at the department or team level, in implementing programs, initiatives, missions, and mission support can use it to identify what is and is not working well in how they manage their performance.
Each ‘wedge’ of the canvas provides a checklist and a few resources. Get started exploring P3 by clicking on one of the three colored wedges above. If you have a resource you can recommend or are want to work with us to create, please contact the staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
