Management accounting systems are difficult to cost justify i.e., what is the value of good information? Moreover, considering a new approach like RCA stems from the recognition of deficiencies in current decision support information. Yet, current information must justify the adoption of the new approach. The RCA Institute offers a framework that reduces an organization’s risk in making these decisions. It begins with an RCA adoption questionnaire/diagnostic and exposure training; progresses to individual skill acquisition and certification; and completes the cycle with implementation assurance reviews, organizational certifications, and periodic implementation/user reviews based on RCA Institute Standards of Practice.
RCA Institute membership is a simple and low risk first step. It provides access to the Institute library, discounts for Institute offerings, and ongoing information, learning and peer experience about RCA as a member of the developing RCA community.
Additionally, Adopters can select from a variety of workshops, case studies and exploratory pilot implementations customized to their organizations needs and abilities to evaluate RCA and understand the decision support information they would get from adopting the approach. Potential Adopters can therefore leverage the RCA Institute’s knowledge base and service offerings, and review existing case studies to explore implementation options to find the most appropriate approach to adopting RCA for their organizations.
