Performance Measurement Lead

Center for Global Health Practice and Impact, Georgetown University

About the organization

The Georgetown University Center for Global Health Practice and Impact (CGHPI) serves countries to improve their population health and well-being and to safeguard against health-related threats by advancing the use of evidence and human-centered enterprise architecture on the path towards achieving equity and social justice. To achieve this mission, we catalyze the uptake, spread, and implementation of innovations; triangulate data from different sources, and tailor visualization of the information for each audience; design and implement integrated service delivery models; support communities of practice to inform policy and practice through efficient data use and horizontal and vertical collaboration; disseminate best practices and evidence globally through open source learning networks; build global, collaborative, multi-disciplinary, and interprofessional networks; undertake research informed by local needs; and invest in local leadership to own and sustain interventions.

Duties

Reporting to the CGHPI Co-Director, the Performance Measurement Portfolio Lead (PMP Lead) will own the Center for Global Health Practice and Impact (CGHPI) impact measurement strategy and execution. At its core, this role is the data-driven voice of program staff, articulating where they’re succeeding; where they’re falling short, and ensuring that these findings translate into meaningful changes across the Center. The core of program impact measurement work will focus on demonstrating that products/services have resulted in “demonstrable program impact, improved effectiveness, efficiency and public health practice” in the countries where CGHPI is active. The last mile is then translating this improved performance into impacting population health of communities where our programs are implemented and providing evidence that shows progress made to ensure sustainability of programs. The PMPL success hinges on the ability to lead a monitoring, evaluation, and performance measurement strategy that allows the center to reliably track its impact globally. This role will also be highly cross functional, working with integrated delivery, global health security, education, research, health care financing, health leadership & governance, program management, operations, and business development teams to infuse data and sound quantitative and qualitative performance and evaluation frameworks, conceptual thinking and data analysis into all decisions.
