Results-Based Accountability Training

Building the Skills to Enhance Your Work

Results-Based Accountability™ (also known as RBA) is a disciplined way of thinking and taking action that communities can use to improve the lives of children, youth, families, adults and the community as a whole. RBA is also used by organizations to improve the performance of their programs. Developed by Mark Friedman and described in his book Trying Hard is Not Good Enough, RBA is being used in all 50 United States and in more than a dozen countries around the world to make measurable change in people’s lives, communities and organizations.

If you haven’t already, also check out the other tools available to support the implementation of RBA, most notably the book, Trying Hard is Not Good Enough, and the software.
