SPB - Strategic Performance and Budget Management

This course is an executive level view of strategic planning, performance management, and performance budgeting in public sector organizations. Using the Government Performance and Results Act and Kaplan & Norton’s Balanced Scorecard as frameworks, students examine the linkage of mission to strategic planning, performance management, measurement, operational strategies, initiatives, and budgets to support senior level decision making. Emphasis is on transparency, outcomes, and linkage between organizational performance and the organization’s budget. With this critical understanding, students develop leadership strategies that shape fiscal budgets to achieve agency strategic outcomes.
