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 the 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 of 2022). If you are just starting a program, this is the best place to start as you plan a well-rounded and highly effective program. If you have a briefing program in place, we encourage you and your team to make it a regular initiative to rate your program on each of the characteristics, assess where opportunities for improvement exist, and set to work taking your program to the next level.
