We’re thrilled to announce that we are halfway through our Continuous Improvement Cohort sessions with our esteemed partners, Women and Children’s Horizons, Kenosha Area Family and Aging Services (KAFASI), and LGBT Center of Southeast Wisconsin. Together, these teams have wholeheartedly embraced the process, immersing themselves in data analysis to gain a deeper understanding of the communities they serve and the effectiveness of their services.
In this week’s session, the focus will be on exploring root cause analysis tools. By employing these tools, the teams aim to uncover the underlying factors that drive outcomes within their organizations. This strategic approach will empower them to make well-informed decisions and enact targeted improvements to enhance their support for the communities they serve.
At the end of June, BOF launched the 3rd iteration of its Continuous Improvement Cohort with teams from Women and Children’s Horizons, Kenosha Area Family and Aging Services (KAFASI) and LGBT Center of Southeast Wisconsin. In our first session, team leads from each organization were provided an overview of the Results Count ™ framework from start to finish and received a copy of Mark Friedman’s Trying Hard is Not Good Enough. Each leader will champion their team's efforts over the course of 8 sessions in pursuit of achieving the best outcomes for those they serve. We are thrilled to partner with these amazing organizations in service of Kenosha County!

Building Our Future is excited to announce the launch of our Results Count Cohort (formerly Continuous Improvement Cohort)! We invite any community partner organization in Kenosha County to consider applying. This Cohort is an excellent opportunity to zoom out on your work, get clear on your results, and receive tailored coaching to improve on your program outcomes - all in service of improving our Kenosha community.
From March to June, a team of 2-4 from your organization can join with others to build a cohort learning environment where you'll learn from each other, try out new tools, and improve your skills in evidence-based decision making. The Cohort will meet seven times between March and June. Each participant will receive a copy of the book Upstream: How to Solve Problems Before They Happen, and each team will receive two personalized coaching sessions with trained BOF facilitators. The cost to participate is $100 per organization.
Curious to learn more? Hear directly from two organizations who participated in last year's cohort--KAC and United Way--in our Together, We're Better podcast episode, "Taking the Time to Make Results Count."
We invite you to apply! Please see the flier and FAQs for more details, and fill out this application form before March 1st. Please also consider sharing this opportunity with others you know--organizations do not need to be a current partner of BOF to participate.

Together, we can achieve better results for our community.
