Abstract: Abstract Several attempts of local areas development fail due to a predominant attention to the internal performance of public organizations. The perspective of local area development may enhance performance management in public entities by considering: a) their outcomes in the local area; b) the inter-institutional relationships actable with other local areas’ organizations to achieve such outcome; c) the improvement of the activity of other social institutions, enterprises and families, through networking and trust. This paper proposes a dynamic performance management (DPM) conceptual model to govern local area development and includes a case study of the Integrated Water System of Agrigento, Italy.
