Avoiding Pain for Performance: How to Design and Implement an Effective Pay-For-Performance System

Categorized Under: Organizational Learning + Performance



Building a pay-for-performance system is an evolutionary process that must begin with the basics. While ideally all five of the primary elements—culture and leadership, resources, policies and procedures, performance objectives, and evaluation plans—should be addressed before a pay-for-performance system is instituted, in reality, most agencies are not afforded the time. In this white paper, ICF International provides a platform to raise awareness that the focus should remain on performance, thereby providing lasting results for the organizations.
