This training is the first in a series of seven training modules designed specifically for Community Action Agency Boards on the  Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) cycle.These trainings are meant to be adapted by agencies to use in whatever way best engages Boards in the discussion about the ROMA cycle, either as short stand alone segments or to be joined together in as a full day workshop. Taken together, this training series will provide sufficient information for participants to be able to

  • Understand the foundational concepts that will help local agencies and the entire CSBG network increase their performance measurement and management capacity so that the Community Action National Goals are accomplished.
  • Recall and describe the basic elements of the Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) principles and practices
  • Discuss how all the elements of the ROMA Cycle, Organizational Standards and the Performance Management Framework work together
  • Understand how to meet and exceed Organizational Standards by greater focus on the ROMA Cycle

This specific training is designed as an introduction to the ROMA framework.Not every Board will need in depth understanding of all of the elements of the ROMA Cycle, but the Organizational Standards do require Board involvement in every phase of the Cycle.  Therefore, each Board Member must understand the expected roles and responsibilities at each phase.
