ROMA Next Generation

ROMA Next Generation Curriculum
The Association for Nationally Certified ROMA Trainers (ANCRT) and the Community Action Partnership have released a training series around ROMA Next Generation:  Implementing the ROMA Cycle in the “Next Generation” Performance Management Framework.  Within the training series you will find 4 video modules that introduce the following topics:  Creating a Local Theory of Change, Understanding Community Level Work, Setting the Stage for Data Collection, and an Introduction to the Analysis and Use of Data.  Each has a PDF of the associated slide deck.  In addition, three workshops dig deeper into the topics of the Theory of Change, Community Level Work, and Collecting & Analyzing Data.  An accompanying facilitator guide for each allows for agencies to utilize the materials how they see fit, with either a Nationally Certified ROMA Trainer, Nationally Certified ROMA Implementer, or other experienced facilitator leading the workshop.  The 5th piece of the series will be released in the next year with brief “beyond the basics” training modules around each piece of the ROMA cycle.
