RBA Training

RBAapr18An overview of Results Based Accountability

Results Based Accountability™ (RBA) is a structured and disciplined way of working for communities and agencies who want to improve the wellbeing of populations and/or the performance of specific programmes or service systems. RBA was developed by Mark Friedman, author of the book Trying Hard Is Not Good Enough.
It is being used worldwide and throughout New Zealand by a range of social service providers, communities, local and central government agencies.
RBA can be a powerful change agent as it quickly moves us from talking about processes, to taking action to achieve results. It works backwards from ends to means by identifying the desired result then determining the 'means' of achieving the result.
