This guide outlines the key content of performance measurement strategies, provides a recommended process for developing clear, concise performance measurement strategies, and presents examples of tools and frameworks for that purpose. It also provides an overview of the roles of program managers and heads of evaluation for developing performance measurement strategies. This guide also outlines key points to consider when developing performance measurement strategies, including linkages to the Policy on Management, Resources and Results Structures and the Policy on Transfer Payments.
