Background and aim of the programme
This programme is for senior managers and leaders who are not in direct contact with practice on a regular basis but who need to understand what organisational implementation of PBS involves and what their role in implementation is. The overall aim of the programme is for senior managers and leaders to know and be able to articulate what PBS is and what it isn’t, understand what conditions are needed for PBS to be implemented, what needs to be in place to monitor PBS, actions needed to sustain it and to continuously improve PBS practice.
