We offer several different training products, all related to OBM. All our products are sold under license to the general public by our Certified Partners. Please note that we are NOT a training company. You will learn more about our OBM Level Training series of products on this page.

For information about our License model and the Business Case for Resellers and Training companies, please refer to Partners.

The OBM Level Training series of products for participants consists of a three-tier growth model, that participants have to follow in a specific order.

These trainings are based on the successful range of Certified OBM educational products and developed in cooperation with the ADRIBA Institute of VU University Amsterdam (The Netherlands). Since 2011, ADRIBA has trained and certified hundreds of people from over thirty different countries at Advanced Bachelor/Master Degree level.

Especially the OBM Summer School at the VU University Amsterdam is a good example: within only three years, this two-week OBM Course has become one of the most popular and highly valued courses of the entire Summer School of the VU University Amsterdam. People from all over the world come to Amsterdam to learn about OBM! It is an interesting fact that, regardless of culture, color or creed, the average score on the evaluation forms is higher than 9/10.

We were both very much involved in the development and teaching of these products and that inspired us to also develop a few products for non-Bachelor degree holders. On top of that, OBM Dynamics B.V. has developed Train-the-Trainer products relating to the OBM Level Training series of products for training organizations. These are actually called Train-the-Instructor products (TTIs).

1. The OBM Foundation Level Training

This training is now available and lays the foundation for knowledge on organizational behavior, performance and how to influence both.

Basically it is all about learning the principles of how to “bring out the best in people”, a paraphrase of one of the founding fathers of OBM, Dr. Aubrey C. Daniels, PhD.

The training consists of three days or six dayparts, depending on your client’s needs and wishes.

Contents

Day 1:

  • Introduction
  • ABC model
  • ABC analysis
  • Antecedents

Day 2:

  • Consequences
  • Dealing with undesired behaviour
  • Reinforcement

Day 3:

  • Protocol for organizational behavior
  • management
  • Wrap up
  • Exam training
Goals

Participants will:

  • Get an in-depth introduction in OBM theory
  • Get acquainted with general concepts of the ABC model and the OBM Protocol
  • Learn how to specify and pinpoint performances
  • Learn about measurement of the necessary behaviors
  • Learn about analyzing desired and undesired behaviors
  • Learn about available interventions to really improve the performance
  • Learn about dealing with unwanted behavior
  • Learn about the astonishing power of positive reinforcement
  • Learn from the trainer’s examples
  • Learn from other participants / other cases
Examination

Partners and Instructors may choose how and when to have this training followed-up by the official exam. In order for a Partner to be able to buy and invigilate the exam, they need to acquire the status of an Accredited Training Organization of APMG International first.

The training is comparable to the level of training that participants receive when enrolling in courses like e.g. ITIL Foundation, AgilePM Foundation or Lean Six Sigma Yellow / Green Belt.

2. The OBM Application Level Training

This training is based on the successful Certified OBM Practitioner training from VU University Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in which participants apply in practice the knowledge obtained in the OBM Foundation Level Training. By referring to an actual existing case in their own organization, participants learn how to make a difference by implementing OBM, as they are applying it to a real-life situation.

As a result of this particular approach, the training will last several months (lead time). The actual contact hours with the trainer are, however, limited to several days dispersed over those months.

This training is expected to become available on the market in the second half of 2020 and for the participants it will entail:

  • Learning how to apply OBM in practice using a specially developed online Case Management system called the OBM Optimizer

At OBM Dynamics we use the term OBM Instructor, as we do not only teach and train, we also help people to successfully apply the concepts from the OBM body of knowledge by giving them specific instructions.

OBM is a very precise method that needs some getting used to, and this requires the attention of very competent OBM Instructors.

The OBM Foundation Level TTI is now available for would-be instructors. Register for the training on Instructors or by contacting our office via sales@obmdynamics.nl.
