RBA training and ongoing support


RBA Graphic

Results Based Accountability™ (RBA) is a common sense approach to using outcome based thinking to help improve the wellbeing of populations and the performance of services.

RBA was developed by Mark Friedman and is set out in full in his book Trying Hard Is Not Good Enough. See Mark’s website HERE

RBA is being used in the UK and internationally by a growing number of public and voluntary organisations and partnerships to help inform project and service planning, commissioning and performance management.

We have over eight years’ experience of delivering training and ongoing support in using an RBA approach.



Praxis Makes Perfect offers the following:

  • Introduction to Results Based Accountability (RBA) training workshops for community groups, partnerships, individual organisations running projects and programmes, service management teams and their frontline staff.
  • Bespoke team planning and review sessions – So you’ve done the training and you’re inspired to use RBA with your team…but…it’s proving to be a bit of a challenge
  • Using innovative methods for gathering the information needed including film and other digital media platforms, action research, creative and artistic events, and stakeholder workshops.
  • Using an RBA approach to funding bids that show how your ideas fit with wider strategies.
  • Creating reports and presentations for funders that show what difference your work has made to the wellbeing of your customers/clients/community.

Managers, funders and others will know:

  • How well your project delivers its activities.
  • Who has benefitted from these activities and how.
  • How well your project is progressing towards achieving the outcomes envisaged.
  • At the end of the project whether it has achieved these outcomes.
