Performance Measurement, Development Indicators and Aboriginal Economic Development
MetadataShow full item record
This report defines the language of outcomes, indicators, and performance measures and then summarizes a review of applications of several strategies and tools for tracking progress that have been developed since the late 80s. It then reviews the current performance measurement practice of Indian and Northern Affairs at the policy, program, intermediary, and community level. The results demonstrate a confused, wholly inadequate approach to the application of indicators and performance measures at every level. An important feature of the report is found in the Appendix, which sets out a very preliminary strategy for designing indicators that link the characteristics of best practices in Aboriginal Economic Development to possible indicators relevant to each of the four levels, right from the national policy level to the site of the aboriginal community.
