A Comprehensive Resource for the RBA/OBA Community
This guide is intended for those working to understand Results-Based Accountability or Outcomes-Based Accountabilty in their community, city, county, council, state or nation. Implementation of this framework requires courage, time, discipline and knowledge about HOW to do the work. This guide is an outline with examples of how to facilitate work, and is an attempt to summarize the tools necessary to implement RBA.
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.
Additionally, we have seen the best reinforcement of RBA through:
- Clear Impact’s RBA Professional Online Certification
- Reading the book, Trying Hard is Not Good Enough
- Data gathering and tracking your impact through the Clear Impact’s Scorecard and Compyle Software System
- Analysis and guidance of your mission with RBA consultants and group training
