- Understand how to meet and exceed Organizational Standards by greater focus on the ROMA Cycle
This training can be done before Assessment, between Assessment and Planning, or at several other places in the series. This is a brief introduction to the idea of “whole agency” approach and getting the Board to articulate their assumptions about what the agency is supposed to be achieving.
