OFM will have additional furlough days (to be determined) for the remainder of the summer and through the fall.


New Public Performance Review Process
Results Washington is refocusing its efforts toward partnering with state agencies on complex, cross-enterprise projects. Our goal is to develop a process that fosters partnership and focuses on the outcomes that matter to state agencies, the Governor, and ultimately the state of Washington. More information can be found here
Existing Outcome Measures/Dashboards and Results Reviews
During our refocus, we are putting on hold updates to our current outcome measures/dashboards to assure that current enterprise projects address current reality. Results Reviews for the remainder of 2020 are canceled, both due to COVID and the introduction of the new Public Performance Review process in 2021
Washington State Lean Transformation Conference
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are changing our plan for the 9th Annual Washington State Lean Transformation Conference. This year, the Results Washington team is planning to deliver the conference in a virtual setting in October. Updates and announcements will be posted here, as they become available.

 

Washington state government has a long history of leading the charge in public-sector performance improvement. Leadership engagement and ongoing investment in performance management systems and tools reflects a state government culture committed to delivering better results. Results Washington is the latest iteration of this performance management system. Our mission is to create a more responsive, data driven, and human centered government.

The February Results Review focused on reducing recidivism by increasing the resilience of youth in our Juvenile Rehabilitation system. We learned about how complex stress and trauma creates patterns in the brain that lead to unhealthy behaviors, as well as what communities can do to build resilient youth. We had an overview of current data, rates of substance use disorder, and behavioral health treatment needs as well as learned how youth from Green Hill School are directly impacting the trauma-informed training of staff. We also learned about guided pathways for skill-building and educational opportunities that lead to employment, and heard from a young man who has successfully completed those programs. Finally, the Office of Homeless Youth talked about how youth who’ve experienced housing instability while transitioning out of state systems of care were able to co-design solutions to problems they’ve faced.
