MCDOT – Scoreboard Measurement In 2007, enhancing productivity with an emphasis on customer service in MCDOT became my priority.
Was there a system that would motivate Transportation Staff to work more efficiently and with enthusiasm in a downturn economy? 27 Scoreboard presentation for Board of Supervisors
(#) A Scoreboard system was selected and initiated by providing training to MCDOT staff
The First edition of Scoreboards in 2008 was somewhat effective. 29 Scoreboard presentation for Board of Supervisors Most of the scoreboards used Widget counting. Goals were unclear and staff was cynical.
System was performing below expectation until frequency of feedback and execution was accelerated in 2009. 30 Scoreboard presentation for Board of Supervisors Low Frequency High Frequency Quarterly meetings Weekly Meetings This led to greatly increased communication, understanding and use of scoreboards.
With more frequent attention, Deployment of Scoreboards increased MCDOT Leadership turned its focus to the following five objectives Determine Results Review Results Communicate Results Set Targets & Improve Reward & Recognize (AND Important to the AQA)
Staff saw the benefits and were moving to approval and buy-in for the system 32 Scoreboard presentation for Board of Supervisors FY2010 & FY2011 BRANCH MANAGER OVERALL SATISFACTION Higher is Better
The scoreboards showed marked increases in several performance areas in 2011 33 Scoreboard presentation for Board of Supervisors TIP CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS COMPLETED Higher is Better
Data from AQA indicated that benchmarking could significantly improve performance and give an indication of comparative success. 34 Scoreboard presentation for Board of Supervisors AQA Feedback Need to show how improvements are tied in to actual Scoreboard Think outside of our comfort zone & areas of expertise when considering performance comparisons Need a direct link between Scoreboard measurement process and resulting process improvements
Results were not only encouraging; they indicated that MCDOT was now surpassing other similar agencies in the Southwest 35Presentation for Board of Supervisors PAVEMENT CONDITIONS BENCHMARKING
The AQA awarded MCDOT a Showcase in Excellence award in early 2012 for these efforts. Happy to receive recognition Increased dedication to continuous improvement Better use of benchmarking Increased communications, internal and external (Citizen Scoreboard) 36 Scoreboard presentation for Board of Supervisors
