Core Competencies // Shifting Impact: Radical Measurement Redesign
Most governments & international institutions are still maintaining a mindset of “command and control”, forcing their employees to validate political decisions already made and directions already set. This session provokes a shift to impact assessment and innovation measurement approaches in public sector innovation towards testing our assumptions, support actual learning as well as establishing accountability.
In this session led by States of Change, we look at some daring examples on how indicators can be something continuously developed with local practitioners, a meaningful interpretation of what is valuable can be ensured and what innovation practitioners can do to strengthen each others efforts to make that happen. Working language is English.
