Strategic Performance Management (SPM) guides an agency (SEA, LEA, charter management organization, special education cooperative, for example) to set its direction, operationalize the direction, design actionable work, and establish performance and innovation cycles.
Results: The organization creates or significantly revises a strategic plan, establishes performance metrics, organizes personnel for optimal performance, sets annual milestones, creates team-level action plans, and initiates a monthly, quarterly, and annual status review to adjust course and encourage innovation.
Everyone on the same page. We are constantly looping back to the strategic plan, not just the work we are doing but how we are communicating it. We do not do our work in a vacuum— every person’s work has an impact on others.
In a Strategic Network of Performance Management (SnPM) the lead agency (e.g., (SEA, LEA, CMO) applies SPM principles across a network of districts or schools, generating interlaced data that enable rapid circuits of information to guide decision-making and course correction within each organization and across them to inform responsive supports.
RESULTS: The lead organization (SEA, LEA, CMO, for example), with input from network entities (LEAs and schools, for example), establishes common strategic planning formats and data procedures (interlaced data) to optimize the timely and appropriate supports (responsive supports) throughout the network.
Sovereignty Performance Management (SvPM) is an adaptation of Strategic Performance Management by Academic Development Institute (ADI) with assistance from the Tribal Education Department National Assembly, Washington Education Services District 113 (ESD 113), a Native American consultant. SvPM is a version of strategic performance management tailored for Tribes and is designed to plan and manage the Tribe’s initiatives to ensure its citizens benefit from high-quality education.
RESULTS: The Tribe, usually through its TEA/TED, creates or significantly revises a strategic plan, establishes performance metrics, organizes personnel for optimal performance, sets annual milestones, creates team-level action plans, and initiates a monthly, quarterly, and annual status review to adjust course and encourage innovation.
