Applying OBM to Human Services

Abstract: Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) has been applied successfully to numerous industries since the late 1960s. One industry that has quietly benefited from the work of a small number of OBM researchers has been human services; however, this work has not been widely disseminated. The past ten years of unprecedented growth in ABA has resulted in many behavior analysts being confronted more and more with challenges that many mature industries have faced for decades. I believe the sudden growth of our field is largely responsible for increased interest in OBM. This lecture will present relevant research on OBM and human services, and where the research is missing, present recommendations from my practice to provide strategies for behavior analysts to incorporate sound OBM strategies into their organizations.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will describe the components of a weighted scorecard
