Improving Public Governance by Using Performance Evaluation and Knowledge Management Approaches

Dangis Gudelis


In this article interrelationship between public governance, Knowledge Management and performance evaluation is discussed. It is argued that Knowledge Management which is defined as steering of processes of creation, sharing and application of knowledge by use of information and communication technologies is related to performance evaluation which includes performance measurement and program evaluation. In the processes of performance measurement and evaluation certain knowledge is created which should also be efficiently distributed and properly applied. Knowledge Management systems could be measured and evaluated too. In the paper the concept of „public governance“ as the new paradigm of public administration which differs both of traditional public administration and the New Public Management, is formulated. The arguments are presented that specific Knowledge Management strategies as well as performance evaluation could contribute to implementation of principles of good public governance.
