A Comprehensive Resource for the RBA/OBA Community
This guide is intended for those working to implement Results-Based Accountability or Outcomes-Based Accountabilty in their community, city, county, council, state or nation. Implementation is no small matter. The leap from theory to practice requires courage, time, discipline and some knowledge about HOW to do the work. This guide is devoted to this last ingredient, how to do the work. It is an attempt to summarize as much as possible of what we know about implementation.
The guide is organized around questions people typically ask about RBA/OBA. We have tried to find the hardest questions, and give the best answers we could. There is still much we don’t know about this work, and, in truth, there always will be. This work is, by its nature, a process of experimentation and discovery. For that reason we also see this guide as a work in progress, where we will add new knowledge as we gather it.
You are part of that gathering process. As you read this you will find that you have ideas and experience to offer. And we would like to hear from you about it. You may also think of tough questions you would like answered, and we would like to hear these as well. Or you may not be satisfied with the answer offered here. Please Contact Us and let us know. And check out the growing number of tools available to support the implementation of RBA, most notably the book, Trying Hard is Not Good Enough, and the Results Scorecard software.
