Within the field of Evaluation, performance measurement is fast becoming a prevalent framework or set of tools to use in implementation analysis, formative and summative evaluations, and even needs assessments. Many of the measurement techniques that evaluators employ overlap with those of performance management, so evaluators are able to learn and use this framework quite readily. Recent approaches have acknowledged limitations in the implemented measurement systems and developed new practice-based strategies for effective ongoing measurement of program activities and use in guiding management. Significantly, these new strategies are being developed both in the United States and internationally and need to be brought together for collaborative learning and dissemination to practitioners and scholars.

The International Handbook of Practice-Based Performance Management serves as a vehicle for the dissemination of these new performance measurement strategies. The book combines conceptual and practical applications with an emphasis on cutting-edge practices in the U.S. and abroad. This Handbook boasts two unique features: it represents the most notable examples of performance measurement in Canada, Latin America, Asia, Oceania, Europe as well as the U.S.; second, the book supports the integration of theory and practice, with linked chapters that introduce the literature on key topics.
