The Outcomes

Benefiting from the Workshop

The workshop is designed for individuals and teams to attend and/or participate, and the outcomes of the course include:
  • Implementation Timeline: We'll explore the phases of data creation and application and walk you through the design of your own implementation timeline over a phased-approach or a full implementation.

  • Project Charter: Eric Keck, a former PBB implementer as City Manager in two PBB cities and now VP of Customer Success at ResourceX, leads a discussion of what it takes to manage project success in your implementation. He covers what barriers to identify and work through, who to include in your guiding coalition team, how to communicate key messages about PBB to staff and Council, and how to package this plan in a project charter.

  • Plan to Take Action on the Data:  With a "begin with the end in mind" approach, we fast-forward to imagine the moment you're done "implementing PBB" and you have the data, so that we can help you envision your goals for how you want the organization to use the data you create. Will you seek reallocation opportunities, are you interested in finding partnership opportunities locally, will you set expectations for program reviews designed around the PBB Blue Print, etc?

  • Hands-on Practice in the Tools, and Data Upload: On a more practical level, we'll lead you through some hands-on exercises to actually practice creating a program inventory, practice cost allocation and revenue allocation, score programs, review and analyze data, and reallocate resources using the Blue Print framework. You can even bring your own data to load, if it's your intent to partner with us.
