About the course

Performance measures are recognized as an important element of all Total Quality Management programs. Managers and supervisors directing the efforts of an organization or a group have aresponsibility to know how, when, and where to institute a wide range of changes. These changes cannot be sensibly implemented without knowledge of the appropriate information upon which they are based. In addition, among many organizations within the Department of Energy (DOE) complex, there is currently no standardized approach to developing and implementing performance measurement systems.

The implementation of performance measurements for a specific process should involve as many cognizant employees as possible to stimulate ideas and reinforce the notion that this is a team effort requiring buy-in from all involved in order to succeed. Substantial benefits are realized by organizations implementing performance measurement programs. These benefits are realized almost immediately through an improved understanding of processes by all employees. Furthermore, individuals get an opportunity to receive a broadened perspective of the organization's functions, rather than the more limited perspective of their own immediate span of control.
