This course provides an overview and foundational principles of Results-Based Accountability (RBA), which is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to improve entrenched and complex social problems and create measurable change in people’s lives, communities and organizations. RBA uses a data-driven, decision-making process to help communities and organizations get beyond talking about problems to taking action to solve problems and improve the performance of programs. This course includes recorded presentations, interactive activities, learning resources, post-test and evaluation.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define the three (3) main guiding principles of the results-based accountability (RBA) framework.
  • Explain the value of common language, a guiding principle of the results-based accountability (RBA) framework.
  • Discuss how population accountability applies to whole populations (communities, cities, counties, states, nations).
  • Describe how performance accountability applies to client populations (programs, organizations, agencies, service systems).
  • Identify the purpose of the five core questions of Turn the Curve Thinking that moves from talk to action.
  • Recognize what it looks like when a community is applying the results-based accountability (RBA) method.
This initiative is a collaboration with the South Carolina Hospital Association Foundation and the Alliance for a Healthier SC, funded and supported by The Duke Endowment.
