Logic Models – A Tool for Public Sector Performance Management
To ensure value is received for public dollars, it is now widely recognized that public programs must focus on identifying their intended benefits and impacts (outcomes) and measuring the extent to which these have been realized. It is also accepted that for organizations themselves to benefit from this process, there must also be a requirement to report on these measures, explaining variations from expected results and outlining how the organization plans to correct for this in the next cycle. And so the standard for today’s public programs is that their management practices will include four steps: planning results to be achieved, implementing activities to achieve them, measuring actual results and reporting how these results will be used to improve in the next cycle.

Policy Wise "Law & Governance of Secondary Data Use: Obligations of Not-For-Profit Organizations in Alberta"
The data-driven nature of society today involves the collection of significant, if not copious, amounts of information with the aims to share and re-use that data beyond the original purposes at collection.

This paper presents the legal and governance issues for, and obligations of, NFPs when trying to harness a particular data-focused opportu­nity: the sharing and re-use of information beyond the service delivery directing collection
