Wednesday, September 24th, 9am-4pm (RBA 101); Wednesday, October 8th, 9am-12:30pm (Intensive Workshop #1); Wednesday, October 22nd, 9am-12:30pm (Intensive Workshop #2); Results-Based Accountability (RBA) is an approach to measurement that puts the focus on the ends - the quality of life results for a population - rather than the means - the output of a program or system. RBA enables policy-makers, funders, and program administrators to identify how well they are doing in achieving a particular quality of life result and where they might need to make changes. RBA concepts (accountability, program involvement and strategic planning and budgeting) can be applied to virtually any program. Participants can choose to attend the full-day RBA overview or all three sessions. Click here to view the brochure and register today!
