I am happy to report that my proposed performance evaluation and measurement framework was well received and approved by the board of directors.
The next step in this project is to develop operational strategies and tactics to get the framework running. Part of this work entails reviewing existing business practices to determine whether or not they will support the framework.
The California Fisheries Fund is definitely still a start-up. The rapid changes of direction; the nebulous defined roles and responsibilities and the need for self-starters to go through their days doing just that.
Even over the short seven weeks I have been with the CFF, I have experienced the turmoil that goes with working in this kind of fast-paced environment. Right now I feel as if I could throw out half of the draft fund operations manual I was given when I started and in fact, have been trying to do just that with my work on defining, refining and updating our mission performance metrics.
