Download the E-Book

The Results-Based Accountability™ (RBA) framework is used by community, state, national and foreign organizations working towards collective impact. Developed by Mark Friedman and detailed in his book Trying Hard Is Not Good Enough, RBA provides a “disciplined way of thinking and taking action that can be used to improve the quality of life in communities,” as well as “the performance of programs, agencies and service systems.”

Application of the core components of RBA enables organizations and communities to put each of the “collective impact” conditions into operation, helping these groups to turn ideas into action.
