IN4OBE is a team of highly dedicated researchers, leaders, and educators established in order to keep the flame of authentic Outcome Based Education burning throughout the world for a sixth decade. That visionary flame continues to empower every learner and leader within OBE’s reach to develop the skills and attributes that elevate humanity and its evolving future. IN4OBE’s leadership team of flame-keepers has grown, diversified, and evolved over the decades, just as OBE’s defining philosophy, principles, and applications have done. What began in the 1968 as Benjamin Bloom’s mission to improve classroom instruction has come to expand and transform the very meaning of learning, leading, and educating. Today these enormous advances directly apply to business and government as well as to education. IN4OBE believes that humanity is at a tipping point that requires visionary thinking and action in all spheres of endeavor. Educational structures, practices, methods, materials, programs, and outcomes that served the priorities of earlier eras require fundamental rethinking and revision now because they can no longer meet the challenges and complexities facing humanity.
