David worked with us to introduce the OBA approach to our senior clinical leaders and managerial staff. This invaluable session struck a chord with us in terms of how we can make a big impact on improving the health and social care for our population with the scarce resources we have at our disposal.

Draft Programme for Government Framework (Northern Ireland)

I’ve just submitted my response to the publication by the Northern Ireland Executive of its Draft Programme for Government Framework. This is a radical, outcome focused framework based on Mark Friedman’s Outcome Based Accountability™ (OBA) approach. My comments and recommendations address the structure of the programme rather than the substance and identify some easily correctable language distortions that potential confuse the strategy.  I also recommend some consolidation and streamlining that I feel will make what is already a good policy document into an excellent tool for engaging partners and stakeholders in a process of change in Northern Ireland.
