January 10, 12:00-1:00pm: Brown Bag Luncheon: Results Based Accountability
Results Based Accountability (RBA) is a planning, design, and evaluation framework used to tackle complex community problems and improve organization programs. This is a framework that United Way of Central New Mexico uses, and is incorporated into their application process.
RBA starts with the difference a group is trying to achieve—the end—and works backwards to the interventions needed to achieve it—the means. The framework is data driven across this end-to-means path and program level RBA involves setting benchmarks and measuring the quantity, quality, and outcomes of services, answering three questions:
- How much did we do?
- How well did we do it?
- Is anyone better off?
In preparation for this year’s United Way application process, join us for a one-hour introduction led by Aly Sanchez, RBA Scorecard Certified Administrator. We’ll walk through the RBA basics and work through development of Performance Measures
