dc.description.abstractPerformance measurement is a subject of some importance within the public sector. This study examines the design and development of a performance measurement framework within a local government department. It used a narrative case study approach to follow the process used by the design team involved. The design team began by examining the performance literature at a number of levels, and from this distilled eight design principles, from which they built a performance measurement framework. The design team encountered a number of challenges during this process; challenges they expected based on the literature. From the experiences of the design team, a number of hypotheses suitable for further testing have been derived. This study provides useful advice for performance measurement professionals within the public sector in developing frameworks grounded in theory, whether at the central or local government level.en_NZ
