From the conference website:
“The main goal of this international conference is to convene leading scholars and practitioners to consider existing and future innovations in public sector performance management, leadership and governance. Public and nonprofit leaders across the globe are facing a varied range of challenges: “managing and measuring for results”, “meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the needs and aspirations of future generations”, “building the global and local partnership and collaborating for public value”, “managing more with less”, “being customer-driven” etc. These pressures have already resulted in major new initiatives, some of which include the creation of new performance measurement,monitoring and evaluation systems. Other new initiatives include the developmentof new governance processes and structures as well as new modes of leadership."
