Evidence-Based Organization (EBO) Masterclass

Strategy & Tactics for Leadership & Organizational Growth

Program Outline

This program is designed for organizations desiring to become more evidence-based and seeking to develop agency-specific strategy and action plans for doing so. Participants will be guided and will collaborate as a team to produce strategic and action plans that incorporate and focus on the five major components of EBO development:

  1. Knowledge and use of evidence-based policies, programs, and practices
  2. Demonstration of effective organizational leadership
  3. Understanding of organizational culture and use of organizational assessment
  4. Utilization of effective strategic planning, performance measurement, and program evaluation
  5. Ongoing efforts to enhance organizational capacity and sustainability

After receiving and discussing training content, participants will use workshop time to develop their agency-specific plans. It is desirable that 4 to 5 workshop participants attend from each agency, with at least one laptop computer available for group use.

Learning Goals & Objectives

This workshop will provide fundamental EBO knowledge and address the common problems associated with moving from a training environment to the implementation and evaluation of evidence-based organizational change efforts. Participants will be given the opportunity to develop:

  • A plan for infusing evidence-based organizational practices combined with evidence-based services into the strategic plan of the agency
  • An appreciation for ethical issues, and current and emerging considerations for human services
  • Strategic and action plans for EBO development
  • An EBO vision and mission
  • Organizational goals and objectives, centered on the 5 key aspects of EBO development

Having learned the framework for becoming evidence based as an organization, (EBO), and had interview discussion with practicing EBO’s we will plan for implementation. You will be guided through the development of your agency-specific strategy and action plans for becoming an EBO, tools you will need, and resources for assessing where you are and what to do next.
