Moving to a Responsibility Center Management Budgeting Model Webcast Recording

(Retired) | Last updated May 9, 2016


Learn how you can customize, make key decisions, and cultivate ownership of a responsibility center management (RCM) budgeting model on your campus. Larry Goldstein will walk you through critical aspects of RCM so you can better:

  • Establish levels of decision making
  • Train your non-financial constituents
  • Gain buy-in and ownership
  • Strategize your roll-out plan

“This explanation and presentation of the RCM budget model was enlightening and very reassuring that our Task Force is on the right track with modifying our current budget program. We also realized throughout the presentation that CSULA has utilized several RCM principles over the past few years.”
– Troy Allen, Director of Strategic Planning & Quality Improvement, CSULA
