"Applying PBB data to drive decision making takes practice, and this webinar is designed for skill building, applied learning, mastery, and also to provide practical exercises that produce real value and insight for your organization."
Priority Based Budgeting (PBB) and Program Based Budgeting are toolsets, they are frameworks for evaluating options and alternatives with respect to resource allocation decisions, and fundamentally a means to achieve a solution to a particular challenge.
The challenge is that most organizations have new programs and services they wish to launch, in order to create a brighter future for their communities, but they don’t have the people or the money to launch these new services.
At the same time, for many, the cost of providing current services continues to increase, putting additional strain on the resources available to achieve the Results that matter most to their citizens.

Resource Xploration Webinar
We believe that in order for local government leaders to succeed in a data-driven era, we're going to need to create more insightful data, and we're going to need 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?
At the heart of the PBB Movement is the realization that so much is "up to local government" and it's partners to tackle for the creation and sustainability of a better world, and if there's one thing for sure it's that we're going to need resources to pursue viable solutions.
The challenge is that resources can seem scarce, and therefore the PBB approach systematically uncovers all available levers one can pull to free up and reallocate (repurpose) the current resources already collected, and to maximize new revenue opportunities to fuel the future they're trying to build.
We believe deeply in the role of local government and the good that it was created to do - our chosen role is to help local government leaders solve the resource equation and thereby unlock the restraints holding organizations back from launching and enhancing the programs vital for a prosperous future.
Therefore concept of the “4-Levels of PBB Mastery” shows every policy maker, every executive and administrator, every department head, budget analyst and organizational leader, how to take the practice of resource mastery and reframe it as the practice to fuel the future we wish to create.
The PBB Movement
Applying PBB, organizations discover solutions to optimize their current resources, and explore opportunities to attain new resources in order to successfully launch the new programs and bolster the highest priority programs required to create the best future they can.
At this year's Priority Based Budgeting Summit, we rolled out a hands-on workshop to practice "data-driven decision making." Applying data in the decision-making process takes practice, just like any other skill. The exercises included in this course are practical and proven (most come from our client's successful experiences) and are designed to build skills and create immediate value.
Data driven decision making of any sort requires a set of skills, made perfect by practice, discipline, persistence and also reflection. For example, Mike and I went to school for engineering in order to learn the overarching principles (tools) of physics, chemistry and math (analogous to the principles of PBB, the Blue Print and the 4-Levels of Mastery), and learned from teachers how to create relevant data through measurement, and then apply principles with data to solve engineering problems.
Similarly, PBB communities create new and relevant data through measurement (program inventory, program costing, program scoring), and then apply the PBB Blue Print framework for action to frame effective policy decisions and trade-offs.
