The City of Oklahoma City, OK began working with Managing Results (MR) in late 2005 to design and implement their Leading for Results performance management initiative. Through City-wide and Departmental strategic planning, performance budgeting, performance reporting and a commitment to building its own internal capacity to sustain and institutionalize performance management, Leading for Results has become the way the Oklahoma City does business.
At this year’s ICMA National Conference in Boston, MA, Oklahoma City’s Budget Director Doug Dowler delivered a presentation entitled “Broadening the Performance Measurement Audience to Citizens.” According to Dowler, “Leading for Results put us in a position so that we now have a performance measurement story to tell. Our challenge has been finding ways to effectively engage our citizens.”
