RIKI and NARA Renew their Exclusive Licensing Key Indicator Agreement for another 5 Years

This past January 2021, the National Association for Regulatory Administration (NARA) and the Research Institute for Key Indicators (RIKI) renewed their exclusive licensing key indicator agreement for 5 additional years. The new agreement has several interesting enhancements. Probably the most significant is the creation of a new course on Licensing Measurement that Dr Fiene will be developing for NARA to be offered through their website. The course will be fully self-contained and self-paced for the learner. It will be offered exclusively through the NARA website on their Facilitated Dialogues Web Page (https://www.naralicensing.org/key-indicator-facilitated-dialogues).

The renewed agreement continues the successive steps in transferring the differential monitoring, risk assessment and key indicator methodologies from RIKI to NARA so that NARA will become the sole owner and licensor of these methodologies.

Look for updates on this website as well as on NARA’s website regarding the new Licensing Measurement course.
