Continuously increasing demands for ABA services, ever changing and expanding licensure and insurance requirements, and demands for quality supervision provision can be overwhelming for even the most well run organization. However, when organizations fail to anticipate, understand, and balance these variables (and the many others impacting organizational performance), the results can be devastating. This workshop will introduce ways in which organizations can regain control over their systems. The focus of the workshop will be on critical system variables that leaders should identify, measure, and manage to ensure clients receive effective treatment, employees receive effective supervision, and organizations remain financially healthy.

Target Audience:

Board certified behavior analysts; graduate students; licensed psychologists.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to: (1) identify critical goals and measures at the business level of the organization; (2) identify cross-functional relationships that affect performance related to organizational goals; (3) identify critical cross-functional goals and measures that will support business level goals and measures.
