Outcome Based Planning and Evaluation (OBPE)

The planning process doesn’t change from Bad to Good with OBPE. But because you have pictured what success would look like, you plan to make that happen.  Here’s what happens to your planning process:

Planning Process Planning Process with OBPE
You get an idea for a program to further the mission of your institution. Identify specific individuals or groups (target audience) with a defined need central to your institution’s mission.
You plan the program, budgeting resources and costs, and argue successfully for funding. Establish clear program outcomes to meet that need. Develop ways to measure those program outcomes (indicators).  Design program to reach that audience and produce the desired outcomes.
You offer the program and monitor the results.

Offer the program having planned what to monitor to show changes in the target audience.
