Increasingly, the better able you are to tell your performance story the better able you are to get the resources you need for your project.

Francis Loughheed, Senior Policy Advisor at Canadian Forest Service, will present a methodology that brings data to results-based management to tell compelling performance stories. Based on 15 years experience working in performance measurement across the Government of Canada, this presentation will be of special interest for government and public sector agencies, with applicable lessons for the private sector.
