Performance Measurement and Rewards
Faculty in this area center their research on the challenges of measuring and incentivizing performance, no matter the activity. They pay attention to how major service industries—such as hospitals, universities, and museums—operate in markets where they compete against or collaborate with for-profit and government organizations.
A Message From Burton Weisbrod, Program Chair
Scholars from economics, law, management, political science, social policy, and statistics have focused policy research on the measurement and rewarding of “performance” in government and nonprofit organizations. They examine how good performance is measured in such areas as education, healthcare and courts—in search of reward mechanisms that provide incentives for efficiency. Research complements IPR’s programs on Education Policy and Urban Policy.
