Habits of an Outcome-Oriented Organisation – Getting Good at Doing Good
In this workshop, we’ll be exploring the central role that leadership plays in nurturing and sustaining what we’re calling ‘the outcome-orientated organisation’. We’ll be sharing our experiences of how to use OBA to best effect in focusing efforts to improve outcomes for children and young people.
Establishing Common Purpose for Place-Based Outcomes through Partnership
How do communities build movement towards outcomes and align partner contributions to deliver collective impact? Achieving the results we want requires a clear understanding of who we are serving and community priorities, a strong focus on leadership that values authentic demand, and partnerships that promote shared accountability.
OBA and, more specifically, leadership for outcomes can challenge traditional political boundaries and vice versa. This workshop will explore both the elected and the organizational “politics” of OBA. We will examine, with illustrative examples, a variety of challenges in and strategies for navigating the “politics” of implementing OBA.
Experiences from England, Northern Ireland and Wales
Much is said about achieving Culture change. Too often this becomes a conversation about restructuring. Real culture change means changing the way we and others think, and how we practice. This workshop will share our experiences of what good culture change looks like, getting buy-in, leadership, and some lessons learned.
A journey not a Destination.
Highlighting the experience of Extern’s Belfast Intensive Family Support Service, this workshop will explore the challenges and rewards of embarking upon outcomes based performance management and the lessons learnt going forward.
The Early Intervention Transformation Programme (EITP)
In this workshop Maurice and Frances will discuss the implementation of OBA across EITP which aims to improve outcomes for children and young people across Northern Ireland through embedding early intervention approaches and transforming mainstream services to in order to deliver a long-term legacy of improvement.
This interactive session will analyse specific case studies of OBA / RBA implementation in the health sector in the United States and in Wales. Presenters will share step by step methods for implementing OBA / RBA for community well-being and improved patient and client outcomes. Tips and techniques will be discussed based on practical experience and external evaluation.
Dorset County Council have developed and are now implementing an innovative cross council Outcomes Framework. The workshop will focus on leadership and implementation of organisational and cultural change; what’s helped and hindered (lessons learnt) and early evidence of impact. What does “good” leadership look like in these times of austerity?
The Story of Vermont, Act 186 and Mark Friedman
What does it mean to lead? Is it about courage or persistence? Is it singular or plural? If party politics isn’t the driver, what makes it possible to introduce new ideas? Can good policy be developed inside politics and outside of party?
When does an individual, or a group of colleagues, begin to believe there must be a better way to achieve results, and actually start looking?
What brings people to a common purpose? What keeps that purpose clear enough to keep unity growing?
In this workshop we want to ask “What would it be like to work in an organisation that was all about outcomes?”.
How would you experience that in your day-to-day work? And how could you use your position to shape how other people experienced it too?
Lots of fun and lots of reasonably priced ideas to help you through the final afternoon.
This session will provide an in-depth look at the tools created by Clear Impact to help non-profit and government organizations implement the OBA framework efficiently and effectively. This will include a demonstration of the Clear Impact Scorecard Software and overview of the new OBA Global Success Stories Library. We will also highlight and review various successfully ‘Turned-Curves’ from users around the world.
Planning, Budgeting and Accountability to Achieve Your Outcomes
This session will feature a discussion of Baltimore, Maryland’s ground-breaking OutcomeStat initiative, which uses OBA to marry budgeting, planning, and program management. Participants will learn about how to break the inertia of the budget process and turn resources into results, make performance measurement more than a paperwork exercise, and create an outcome-based culture.
Early Intervention and turning curves for children and young people
Alison will discuss the implementation and use of RBA in the work of an indigenous community organisation, based in Christchurch New Zealand.
Maania will share the challenges and highlights of developing and implementing an indigenous outcomes framework that is designed to measure opportunities for Māori whānau (families) in the South Island (and outlying islands) of New Zealand to thrive.
Anne will share implementation of OBA/RBA across the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, creating an outcome-focused approach to agency and contract management, and improved outcomes for children and families.
Using RBA to Drive an Integrated Approach to Improving Outcomes
Presented by: Dru Roessle
Dru will share implementation of OBA/RBA within the Vermont Department of Health, and how OBA/RBA is used to reinforce the relationship between health and social well-being more broadly across the Agency of Human Services to improve population and client outcomes by a common agenda.
Focusing on the Challenges and Opportunities Along the Continuing Journey of Implementation.
Practice examples including a place-based framework, safeguarding, youth crime and communities.
This workshop will focus on the OBA development journey within North East Lincolnshire, England. This will charter the journey from initial discussions focusing on work young people to safeguarding and then towards borough-wide application of OBA across the life course.
