About Results-Based Accountability™:
RBA™ is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to address complicated social problems. Communities use it to improve the lives of children, youth, families, adults. RBA is also used by organizations to improve the effectiveness of their programs. RBA™ starts with the ENDS in mind, and works backwards to MEANS. The approach focuses on the community-level conditions of well-being that leaders are agreeing to be accountable for achieving, and then uses common sense steps to organize collective action to make a positive impact.
RBA™ provides communities and organizations tools to:
- Collaborate to achieve results
- Move from “doing good things” to “doing effective things”
- Clearly communicate the community needs and the contribution of each partner in addressing community needs
- Connect the outcomes that clients are experiencing to conditions of well-being in the broader community
