Future dates to be advised.What is Results-Based Accountability?
RBATM is a disciplined way of thinking and taking action that can be used to improve the quality of life in communities, cities, states, territories and nations. RBA TMcan also be used to improve the performance of programs, agencies and service systems.
How does it work?
RBATM starts with ends and works backward, step by step, to means. For communities, the ends are conditions of wellbeing for children, adults, families and the community as a whole such as "Residents with Good Jobs", "Children Ready for School", "A Safe Neighbourhood", or "A Clean Environment". For services, the ends are how customers are better off when the program works the way it should such as the percent of people in a job training program who get and keep good paying jobs.
How can it help?
Many people have been frustrated by past efforts that were all talk and no action. RBA is a process that gets you and your partners from talk to action quickly.
