Following the general trend of globalization and information and intermittence derived from knowledge economy, the key factors of economic competition is decided by knowledge instead of capital assets. Because human acts as the carrier of knowledge, main body of economic competition chiefly shows talent competition. In system of knowledge economy, leader is regarded as more important human resource, recombines factor of production which becomes basic motive force of economic growth, whose quality and efficiency have been the major composition of the core competition in market economic. We have not evaded the crucial question that how to exist and develop in the complex economic structure and how to compete with foreign opponents in the same international arena.From the 1970s, the developed countries, such as England and the U.S.A., have proposed“New Government Movement”to promote government performance (GP), regarding“Government Performance Evaluation”as the key means, that is, great changes from“Administrative Leader”to“Performance Leader”have been taking place. Governments surrounding the world have paid more attention to technical study on how to exploit the rare human resource,“leader”, in the process of economic development.This paper forms a general theoretical structure of evaluation of government leaders’performance (GLP) which is easy to quantitative analysis and practical measurement, sets up the evaluation model of GLP, adopts evaluation methods of qualitative reasoning and marginal analysis and optimal control and data envelopment analysis, measures comprehensive strength of GLP by scientific development index composed of relative contribution effectiveness and relative progress effectiveness and comprehensive efficiency index and comprehensive potentiality index, reflects overall development and comprehensive progress of GLP. This paper emphasizes on designing evaluation structure and constructing evaluation model of GLP, and also on putting to use technical means on evaluation way.First, this paper sets up the evaluation structure model of GLP which consists of five subsections, such as cost subsection and outcome subsection and evaluation subsection and society subsection and action subsection. Five subsections depend on each other and interact mutually, in which evaluation subsection connects each subsection. Then the operation process of evaluation of GLP is qualitatively simulated by the method of qualitative reasoning.Second, this paper points out that GLP is decided by action performance and cost performance and organizational performance in organizational system, quantitatively analyzes vary degrees of which main crucial factors of organizational system affect leaders’performance, depends on changes of organizational cost and GP with keeping the stable state of action performance and regarding optimum leaders’performance as the developing goal, adopts the marginal analysis method and the optimal control technology.Third, GLP is the representative reflection of GP in this paper. We can not totally regard GP as GLP because leader is the main body in organizational system, and not treat all as equals by equalitarianism. GLP is divided from GP based on the method of effevtiveness difference. Its results actually present relative contribution effectiveness of GLP, lay a solid foundation for further implementation on evaluation of GLP.Forth, in former researches progress effectiveness was mostly measured by the ratio of total yearly increments, this paper regards a continuous time region as evaluation bases, makes effective efforts as the core in view of overall situation, really evaluates relative progress effectiveness by dynamic changes of leaders’achievements depending on Three-time Relative Evaluations (TRE), which can be calculated by comparing the foundation index with the present index in analogy set by the method of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA).Fifth, this paper regards sustained growth of social system as the goal, makes utilizable costs and obtainable benefits as the core, takes omnibearing and multi- gradation as features, uses working function and leaders’achievements as the bases, measures scientific development index by the method of“Cost Benefit”, furher evaluates qualification and competence and excellence of government leader.Finally, this paper analyses“Optimization Mechanism”of leader costs and“Feedback Effect”of leader benefits, practically researches on local GLP in a new stage. From evaluation results much deep information can be tapped through the function and usefulness of from outside to inside and from one to the other. Week and strong of GLP can reflect initiative and mission of leader; dominance and recessiveness of GLP can show potentiality and stamina of leader; pedestrian and unusualness of GLP can present ability and innovation of leader. It will realize the optimization of GLP to improve and perfect leader efficiency and reduce leader costs.In the future, we should aim at technical frontier of leader performance evaluation around the world, fully utilize and use much of the knowledge, which relates to evaluation of GLP, to form a new pattern composed of multi-subject and multi-method, continuously improve and perfect former evaluation way, constantly promote leadership evaluation cause to be mature guiding by scientific development theory.
