Event description

Description

featuring

Andreea Anastasiu │ Senior Policy Engagement Officer│ Government Outcomes Lab, University of Oxford

and

Neil Stanworth │ Founding Director │ ATQ Consultants and Government Outcomes Lab Fellow of Practice

The term ‘outcomes’ is used a lot in and around commissioning and service delivery. Chiefly, the term is simply a way of describing the end goals for the citizens who make use of the services we offer. But working out what these desired outcomes are, how to describe them, and how to establish whether they have been achieved, is not always as simple. It can sometimes seem like the road is littered with challenges, contradictions, and unintended consequences.

Nonetheless, figuring out how to work to outcomes has become essential for many public servants and those working in the voluntary and community sector.

This free hands-on workshop will tackle both basic concepts and some of the latest thinking in order to equip attendees with a clear way forward to build an outcomes focus into their work, whether they are commissioning services or delivering them.

The session will explore key concepts, best practice and some of the latest thinking developed by the Government Outcomes Lab, including:

  1. Why and when it may be helpful to set and measure outcomes

  2. How to develop a robust outcomes framework for a project or service

  3. Key considerations for measuring outcomes and setting targets

  4. How to avoid gaming and perverse incentives
