We have worked with David for several years in a number of leadership development programmes. David’s contribution is now one of the first onto the drawing board of any new programme design as his presentation around leadership for outcomes is always totally relevant, challenging and well-received. His presentation of OBA/RBA serves as a powerful reminder of the core purpose of public service.

This is what attracted me to Outcome Based Accountability; its ability to make the complex simple to understand when most of my prior experience was filled with people doing the complete opposite. He talks about the OBA approach as being “cleaner, simpler, more practical and less elitist”. I’ll second that. You can see the article by clicking HERE
