Measuring Our Success
An important element of transformation is to meausre progress toward clearly defined goals within each of our improvement initiatives.
Measuring the success of the initiatives carried out under the Partnerships Transformation Theme will require an ongoing, incremental approach.
The baseline questionnaire for the Streamlining Processes and Reducing Administrative Burdens initiative will lead to a roadmap for future Partnerships Transformation activities. Activities might include events such as process mapping, where people involved in a work flow map out the processes used to identify and eliminate wasteful steps, and find ways to make improvements.
Each partnership team initiative will create its own baseline from which progress will be measured and documented. DHS will enjoy some direct benefits but will focus its work in helping county governments identify and document the benefits they realize through participating in DHS Partnerships Transformation Theme events.
