Event description
Strategic Performance Management (SPM) is a ten-week online, non-credit certificate program for public and nonprofit professionals.

About this event

***FALL 2021 session runs from 09/07/21- 11/10/21.***


The program is designed to help you meet your performance measurement and management needs. We begin with the foundations of performance measurement and help you develop a plan you can put into action.

The online Strategic Performance Management  (SPM) program is a noncredit professional development certificate designed for individuals in public and nonprofit organizations (both leading executives and frontline employees), and citizens interested in the functions of public sector performance measurement. This program has been held online for over five years, and is taught by practitioners well-versed in online instruction. 


Individuals who have benefited in the past include government and nonprofit performance analysts, department directors, budget directors, and program officers, in addition to interested citizens.,


Students enroll in a 10 week training course covering four core topics. Additionally, students receive free access to three optional supplemental units that can be completed anytime in the future.

Students are required to complete various assignments, participate in weekly discussion board topics, and complete a final assessment designed as an applied evaluation of learning outcomes.

The core SPM course is all online and facilitated by scholars in the field of performance management.
