ResourceX has developed a means to recognize an organization’s mastery in taking action on PBB data.

ResourceX believes that for local government leaders to succeed in a data-driven era, local governments need to create more insightful data and develop new skills and clear ambitions to most prosperously put data to use. This is what the 4-Levels of PBB Mastery are all about: what data will we need to create, and what ambitions must we strive for as we apply the data? Each resource mastery level entails a focus on programs, the resources you are willing to allocate, and the outcomes you’re striving to achieve.

Elizabeth will educate, connect, and provide leadership to PBB mastery-focused organizations to strategically align resources with community outcomes. Through Priority Based Budgeting methodology and software, Elizabeth will support local governments in accelerating data-driven decision-making and budgeting to align resources toward society’s biggest challenges.
