Characteristics of a World Class Briefing Program

Launching a new program? Hoping to raise your program to the next level? These standards of World Class Briefing Programs were developed by ABPM's founder in 1994 and are continually monitored and revised by ABPM's Advisory Board (most recently revised by the board and thought leaders in December 2022). If you are just starting a program, this is the best place to begin your journey on the road to a well-rounded and highly impactful program. If you have a briefing program in place, we encourage you and your team to make it a regular initiative to assess your program on each of the characteristics, decide where opportunities for improvement exist, and set to work taking your program to the next level.

ABPM Members can download the document free of charge as part of their member benefits here (you must be logged in as a member to download). Click the ABPM logo at the top left of this page to return to the home page and login.

Additionally, many program teams like to display the Characteristics in their team's office. We've created a 24" x 36" poster, available free to members, that can be printed for that purpose.
