Insert 12.3—Managing for Results

In referring to the accountability of CIDA managers with respect to managing for results, we mean:

  • actively pursuing well-defined policy and specific strategic objectives;
  • assessing and managing the risks associated with the programs and activities undertaken;
  • obtaining and using relevant information on performance;
  • understanding and evaluating to what extent programs and activities are meeting the Agency's performance expectations;
  • continually learning from their experience and redirecting resources more productively among programs and projects;
  • reporting on costs and accomplishments in terms of results; and
  • creating an action-oriented organizational environment that promotes learning by doing, an innovative style of management and an openness to differing viewpoints.
