whether those objectives have been achieved?
Do what you say you will do.

3) Are results evidence-based and independently verifiable?
Have transparent, objective and unambiguous measurement.

4) Are results linked to incentives for the organisation and/or staff?

Have rewards driven by outcomes (Payment by Results).

5) Is there a mechanism for learning lessons and continuous improvement?
Have feedback loops to improve quality and best practice.
