The UBT Tracker is a web-based tool that helps teams and the people who support teams collect and report data related to performance improvement. Tracker helps monitor UBT Projects and Tests of Change by unit, facility and region—giving teams valuable feedback on how they are measuring up to their goals, and giving leaders important information on how each region and the whole program are progressing. Teams can use Tracker to get ideas for their performance improvement projects, checking in Tracker to see what's working for other teams.
To help teams meet their goals and become high performing, the 2010 National Agreement mandates that team rankings will be entered in a UBT national tracker database—in other words, UBT Tracker. The agreement also states:
- To ensure high performance, all UBTs will be rated at least quarterly, based on the Path to Performance criteria.
- Mechanisms will be developed identify and support underachieving teams and to recognize and reward high-performing teams.
