Performance Measurement Using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA)
The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of performance measurement and management with the cutting-edge tool of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) using Performance Improvement Management (PIM) Software Ltd (PIM-DEA). The focus is on the theory of DEA as well as applications in private and public sectors, providing delegates with tools that will enable them to carry out static and dynamic efficiency analysis using standard DEA models and interpret the model results.
The course will also provide an introduction to recent developments in DEA including treatment of varying returns to scale and density, modelling service performance, weight restrictions, productivity assessment, target setting and more, using advanced features of the Performance Improvement Management Software (PIM-DEA).
The course will cover a range of topics including:
understanding of how efficiency analysis fits in the regulatory context
principles underlying DEA
in-depth review of fundamental DEA models considered in regulatory context
case studies on performance measurement using DEA from European jurisdictions
application of DEA to measure ‘static’ (catch-up) and ‘dynamic’ (rate of change) efficiencies
hands-on experience of DEA software from the developers
The course will be delivered by Dr Srini Parthasarathy, Senior Consultant, and developer of ‘state-of-the-art’ procedures for speeding up computation of DEA models, and Professor Emmanuel Thanassoulis, Oxera Associate, (author of Introduction to the Theory and Application of Data Envelopment Analysis and co-developer of PIM-DEA software).
With an appropriate balance between techniques and interpretation, the workshop is intended to be accessible for non-specialists. The topics covered will be most useful for:
regulatory analysts and managers in private and public sectors;
managers in charge of operational efficiency;
policy-makers in the areas of benchmarking and regulation.
