Abstract: Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) has been applied successfully to multiple industries since the 1960's. One industry that has benefited from the work of a small number of researchers has been human services; However, this work has not been widely disseminated. The past 10 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. The lecture will present relevant research on OBM and human services, where the research is missing, and present recommendations from my practice to provide strategies for behavior analysts to incorporate sound OBM strategies into their organizations.
