NARA is excited to present facilitated dialogues on Key Indicators with Dr. Rick Fiene, the father of the Key Indicator System. The Key Indicator System methodology applies across all licensing areas; these dialogues allow licensing professionals across child care, adult care, and child welfare to discuss the application and theory of Key Indicators as they increase efficiency and effectiveness of existing licensing systems.
