Why Results-Based Accountability?
Over the past several years, Results-Based Accountability (RBA) has taken root in Vermont. It has become the go-to planning and evaluation framework for dozens of nonprofits, for United Ways and community coalitions, for private funders, state agencies, and the Vermont State Legislature. Our trainings introduce the key components of Results-Based Accountability in order to help your organization use data to evaluate and improve programs, understand and communicate your impact, and drive strategy. We have successfully facilitated RBA for strategic planning, coached coalitions in the integration of RBA and the collective impact approach, and trained organizations in using data for storytelling.
The Center for New Leadership has been instrumental in this important culture change, offering training, coaching, and support to Vermont leaders as they gain the knowledge and tools to embed RBA in their own organizations. We’ve done this through our collaboration with Common Good Vermont called Benchmarks for a Better Vermont.
