What is Performance Management (PM)?
Performance Management is a rigorous, evidence-based, collaborative problem solving process. The process involves frequent PM reviews to help BCPS align and optimize all school district initiatives and services to the three strategic goals mentioned previously. Guided by data and information, divisions, offices, and departments experience several opportunities to engage in open and honest conversations, during the PM reviews to evaluate each and every unit’s value-added services. During the PM reviews, real-time ‘Action Items’ are identified and assigned to responsible parties. The process is interactive because progress against baseline metrics and assigned Action Items are documented, acted upon, and shared at subsequent PM reviews.
