The Center For Applied Management Practices

About: The Center For Applied Management Practices

Our Story

The Center For Applied Management Practices (CAMP) is a veteran owned small business, incorporated and headquartered in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, just outside the state capital, Harrisburg. CAMP also has offices in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Denver, Colorado.

CAMP was founded in 1998, having previously been established for three years as Positive Outcomes.

In its first 10 ten years, the primary focus of CAMP was management consulting including policy development, strategic planning, evaluation, and research. In this capacity, CAMP operated as an independent think tank whose clients included federal and state governments and the nonprofit community. During this productive period, CAMP also created the national ROMA curriculum introducing mission development, community needs assessment, logic models, outcome scales and matrices, and return-on-investment to the national Community Network, which also found its way into other community based nonprofit agencies and local governments. In 1998, CAMP co-founded the National ROMA Peer-to-Peer Training Program which has trained and certified over 500 persons as ROMA Trainers and Master Trainers in all 50 states, as well as Puerto Rico and Washington DC.

In 2005, having supported various software platforms and assisting nonprofit agencies with the acquisition of software, CAMP developed a prototype outcome based software product built in Excel that was initially used to train nonprofits in client management, accountability, self-evaluation and reporting. Surprisingly, the Excel "tool" found immediate acceptance and application in some of the agencies whose staff attended the training. This introductory software application was named the eLogic Model® Manager but is more familiar as eLogic. CAMP holds the US Trademark for the eLogic Model®. While this was a successful launch, an Excel tool had its limitations and the next step was the development of an Access based application. With changing technology, concerns about security, privacy and confidentiality, and the costs associated with maintaining a server based solution; eLogic was developed as a cloud based application. This version has gone through three iterations, with the newest on schedule for a 2018 release.

Why We Are Different

CAMP occupies a unique position as being both a content and technology provider.

It is our service delivery model, first introduced in the publication Introduction to Results-Oriented Management and Accountability, and later refined in publication of The Accountable Case Manager, that has found acceptance in the human services community. It was after these models were being adopted by human services organizations that the eLogic software product was developed to support the service delivery and management of nonprofit and governmental human service agencies.
