Executive Director Performance Measurement Plan

Decision 1:

The Board adopts the proposed methodology for measuring the Executive Director's performance:

  • Assessment of Executive Director against two dimensions (Key Performance Indicators and competencies);
  • Adoption of best practice "balanced scorecard" approach to define Executive Director Key Performance Indicators;
  • Use of a system that can be used consistently at all levels of the Secretariat to measure performance, and integrated into other key processes such as talent development, strategic planning and budgeting.

Decision 2:

The Board approves the proposed 14 Key Performance Indicators for the Executive Director and associated 2005 targets (see page 10 of Annex 1 to GF/B9/15).

Decision 3:

The Board approves the competency model and associated behaviors that will be used to assess how the Executive Director has achieved targets (see page 12 of Annex 1 to GF/B9/15).

Decision 4:

The Board agrees to the timing and process for annual evaluation of Executive Director performance:

  • KPIs and targets proposed by Executive Director and approved by Board before start of year;
  • Assessment of competencies led by external evaluator (professional assessment firm);
  • Final report on Executive Director performance prepared by a small Performance Assessment Committee (consisting of Board members) in January-February of each year.

Decision 5:

The Board agrees to the adoption of 5 key Board objectives, metrics and targets for which it has responsibility (related to results and impact, mobilizing resources, supporting country-level implementation, deciding on long-term strategy and providing best practice governance ), and agrees to an annual self-evaluation against these targets (see page 19 of Annex 1 to GF/B9/15, for details).
