Performance Measurement


ANSER understands the unique challenges facing government leaders when it comes to proving and improving results. Our analysts explored key difficulties and leading practices in measuring outcomes in public programs while supporting ANSER’s operation of a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Our foundational work, Measuring for Results: Key Concepts for Understanding the Performance of DHS Programs and Activities, presents a guidebook for both program-level and executive leadership in how to think through problems associated with designing and using performance measures. The principles described in this guide are applicable to a wide variety of hard-to-measure circumstances both within and outside the homeland security enterprise.

Measuring for Results: Application of Key Concepts to Resilience Measurement offers a deeper dive into our ongoing research agenda and focuses on the crucial topic of complex resilience—the ability of human, economic, and physical systems to resist catastrophic damage and quickly recover.
