Developing Not for Profit Performance Management Systems
Overview and Purpose
Establishing a performance management system in a Not for Profit organisation can be a challenging task. Not for Profits can vary from the small (one to two paid staff) to the very large (over 500 staff), ruling out a one-size-fits-all approach to performance management.
This publication provides a knowledge-base that explains the framework behind developing a Not for Profit Performance Management System, and provides step-by-step activities to assist in developing your own system. It also includes suggestions on how to get the most from your system.
It is a practical tool which can be utilised by any organisation, regardless of size. It also includes a section on performance management of volunteers, which requires a different approach from that of paid employees.
