Results Based Accountability

The Results Based Accountability™ (RBA)  process provides a step-by-step process to get results.  RBA defines both population level (a measure of whether we have achieved our outcome goals for the defined population) and performance level (measure of how well a program or service is working) measures.  RBA uses a common sense approaches to gather data; simple things like community surveys with just a few questions or a show of hands at a meeting.  RBA starts by asking the simple questions:

How much are we doing?
How well are we doing it?
Is anyone better off?
