An International Journey

Slide show (powerpoint file)

Mark Friedman, Director, Fiscal Policy Studies Institute, Santa Fe, presented a brief overview of the OBA approach and international examples of the impact of the approach, with specific focus on improving the quality of life of whole communities and outcomes for customers or service users.  Developed by him and widely used in the USA and countries across the world including the UK, OBA provides practical methods for taking action together that are simple and common sense, which use plain language, produce minimum paper and are useful to managers, community members and decision makers. The approach was one of the influences on the development of the ‘Every Child Matters’ outcomes framework in England.
