The Road to Adoption and Implementation of the Results-Based Management Approach – the CARICOM experience.

Panel Discussion | Online

About the Event

In 2021, Results Based Management was endorsed by CARICOM member states, and a pilot was initiated in three countries (Dominica, Jamaica, and St. Lucia) and three regional institutions (CXC, IMPACTS, and CDF). This presentation will highlight:

(1) how RBM was operationalized in the pilot countries and organizations,
(2) challenges with operationalization,
(3) successes since operationalization,
(4) lessons learnt during operationalization and since implementation, and
(5) whether those in the pilot would recommend the full rollout of RBM in CARICOM governments and regional institutions at this time.
