Moynihan to discuss use of performance data

La Follette School professor Donald Moynihan will describe efforts to make the public sector more focused on outcomes through performance measurement techniques in a talk Tuesday, April 20, at 12:05 p.m. in 4274 Chamberlin Hall. Bureaucrats use the data for different purposes and with different consequences, some unintended. Moynihan's talk, "The Dynamics of Performance Management: Governance Reform Amidst Complexity," at the Chaos and Complex Systems Seminar will summarize these reforms, their consequences and the particular factors that affect how public actors use performance data.
