Variants of RCM started with Havard's "Each Tub on its Own Bottom" management system and first appeared in public institutions in the 1970s with Penn State's Responsibility Centered Management and subsequent versions such as USC's Revenue Center Management and Indiana's Responsibility Centered Budgeting. Much has been written describing these implementations and assessing the impact of these systems. The links below are a selection of some of these readings.
