PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT

Instiglio helps organizations transition to Results-Based Financing by providing performance management services to better understand, track and manage their results. Data is at the core of this service, facilitating decision-making that improves the impact of social programs.

WHAT IS PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT?

Performance Management enables organizations to gain insight into preliminary indicators of its eventual performance against the outcomes of interest and course-correct service delivery.
This is achieved through a system that allows for a tactical monitoring of activities and outcomes in real time. It generates information and knowledge useful to make dynamic adjustments to program implementation and ensure impact.

WHAT PROBLEM DOES PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT ADDRESS?

Initiatives struggle to achieve social impact because their monitoring and evaluation techniques lack focus on real-time outcomes. Performance Management helps answer these 4 key questions:

Are we on track to achieving impact?

What is working and what is not?

What design changes need to be implemented across the program?

What knowledge can we transfer from one implementing unit to another?

WHAT DOES PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT LOOK LIKE IN ACTION?

Instiglio assists our partners in vetting their theory of change, identifying critical intermediary indicators, and creating a dashboard to monitor and influence outcomes in real time.
We also accompany and support the teams in the important process of accelerating a culture of performance to build long-term capacity.

WHO USES PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT?

Social investors and donors use Performance Management to gain rapid insights on the performance of investments against social outcomes of interest, creating an accountability towards these outcomes.
Service Providers use Performance Management to gain dynamic and actionable insights to improve performance, thus improving impact.

IN WHAT THEMATIC AREAS HAS PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT BEEN IMPLEMENTED?

Performance management is suitable for all thematic areas and projects in which results are measurable within reasonable time-frames. Instiglio has helped our partners implement Performance Management systems to improve education and child development outcomes; and we are working to introduce the system in some of our ongoing RBF projects.
