Olathe earns ICMA Certificate of Excellence in Performance Management

Post Date:07/16/2018

The International City/County Management Association (ICMA) recognized the City of Olathe for its data-driven management and reporting efforts with a Certificate of Excellence in Performance Management, the highest level of recognition. This is the 10th consecutive year the City of Olathe has received this certificate.

“Performance management is a bedrock principle of professional local government management,” ICMA Executive Director Marc A. Ott said. “By recognizing these leaders, ICMA hopes to encourage others to make a commitment to collect and analyze data, report it transparently, and use it to continuously engage their communities and improve their organizations.”

Certificates of Excellence go to jurisdictions who track and report key outcomes, survey residents and local government employees, incorporate data into performance dashboards or other visual communications, and foster the development of a performance culture throughout their organizations.    

A complete list of recipients and examples of programs that exemplify the certificate criteria appear on the Certificate Program page on the ICMA website.

ICMA will officially recognize recipients at its 104th Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, September 23-26, and in the October 2018 issue of PM (Public Management) magazine.
