International Handbook of Practice-Based Performance Management by Patria deLancer Julnes
Book DescriptionWithin the field of Evaluation, performance measurement is fast becoming a prevalent framework or set of tools to use in implementation analysis, formative and summative evaluations, and even needs assessments. Many of the measurement techniques that evaluators employ overlap with those of performance management, so evaluators are able to learn and use this framework quite readily. Recent approaches have acknowledged limitations in the implemented meaurement systems and developed new practice-based strategies for effective ongoing measurement of program activities and use in guiding management. Significantly, these new strategies are being developed both in the United States and internationally and need to be brought together for collaborative learning and dissemination to practitioners and scholars. Julnes's text will serve as a vehicle for the dissemination of these new performance measurement strategies. The book will have a combination of conceptual and practical applications with an emphasis on cutting-edge practices in the US and abroad. The text boasts two unique features: first, though most of the chapters deal with performance measurement in the US., the text represents the most notable examples of performance measurement in Canada, Latin America, Europe and Eastern Europe; second, the book will be unique in the way that its structure will support the integration of theory and practice, with linked chapters that introduce the literature on key topics, present case studies with "lessons learned," and then provide clear guidance for practical "how-to//skill building.

Author Biography - Patria deLancer Julnes
It may sound cliche, but I always wanted to help government do better. I've always felt that government's role is to ensure a good quality of life for citizens. Otherwise, what's the point of government? But to do this, government (everywhere) needs tools. In particular, government needs tools that can provide adequate knowledge to improve decisions that will impact the quality of life of citizens. My profession and my field have allowed me to contribute to this knowledge through my contact with students and colleagues and through my research. But more recently, as I've reflected on my life growing up in the Dominican Republic, my efforts to establish a public administration program there, my travels around the world and the situation in the United States, I've become convinced that ethics is the most critical tool that government needs. Although I don't teach a course on ethics, I include the concept in all my classes. Also, I've started a line of research that looks for ways to integrate ethics in every aspect of government and especially in program performance measurement. In my mind, the more ethical government is, the more likely it is to succeed in providing a good quality of life for all citizens. Maria P. Aristigueta is the Charles P. Messick Professor, Director of the School of Public Policy and Administration, and Policy Fellow in the Institute of Public Administration at the University of Delaware. Her teaching and research interests are primarily in the areas of public sector management and include performance measurement, strategic planning, civil society, and organizational behavior. She is a coauthor of Managing Human Behavior in Public and Nonprofit Organizations (3rd edition), author of Managing for Results in State Government and Managing Behavior in Public and Non-Profit Organizations, and coeditor of the International Handbook of Practice-Based Performance Management.
