Academic references to outcomes theory: Duignan (2009d)*
Outcomes systems are know by names such as: strategic planning, performance management, results-based management, accountability, KPI lists, risk management, monitoring, evaluation, best practice sharing, enterprise portfolio managment etc. . .
Any system for identifying, prioritizing, aligning, measuring, attributing, holding parties to account for, contracting for, and delegating any type of outcomes or results.
Outcomes systems are the machine that lies at the heart of every human endeavor harnessing human effort to bring about better outcomes in any sector, in any country, at any time.
If our outcomes systems are broken, our world ends up broken. . .
