Performance and Strategic Outcomes Directorate
We enhance the strategic coherence and impact of Government in achieving its outcomes over the short, medium and long term.
We are responsible for:
- supporting the Government’s senior leadership team in taking a strategic overview and assessment of Scotland-wide opportunities and challenges
- promoting greater strategic alignment and coherence of the overall government programme, by applying new insights or innovative approaches to cross-cutting issues
- enabling, supporting and challenging colleagues to improve performance against Scotland’s National Outcomes and the Sustainable Development Goals
- leading on the production of Programme for Government (PfG) and reporting on the National Performance Framework (NPF)
We work collaboratively with policy teams throughout the Government on a range of social, economic and constitutional projects.
