Economic Vitality Performance Metrics

July 29, 2010 at 7:01 am Leave a comment

There are several interrelated elements economic vitality organizations use to measure performance of their programs or organizations. These elements are:

  • Inputs, which are resources such as money, staff time and other items used to produce outputs and outcomes. Inputs indicate the amount of a particular resource that is actually used to produce a desired result;
  • Activities, which are the actions a program takes to achieve a particular result;
  • Outputs, which are the amounts of products created and services delivered in a reported period, such as number of training programs conducted, number of classes taught, or number of clients served; and
  • Outcomes, which are changes in knowledge, skills, attitudes, values, behavior, or condition that indicate progress toward achieving the program’s mission and objectives. Outcomes can be short-term, intermediate, or long-term. Outcomes are linked to a program’s overall mission.
