We will start with the basics of Results-Based Accountability with an overview explaining the difference between population level accountability and performance level accountability. We will then take a deep dive into performance management, developing RBA grids for participant programs.
After two weeks of preparation, teams prepare to start using their data in organizational decision making. The “Turn the Curve” exercise is introduced at the program level. This is a tool-based, hands on workshop introducing the potential of RBA to be used to structure meetings and solve problems.
If you have any questions, please contact Julie van der Horst Jansen, BusinessManager with Benchmarks for a Better Vermont at email@example.com, or (802) 258-9204. To learn more about RBA, visit the Benchmarks for a Better Vermont website at www.bbvt.marlboro.edu.

Nonprofit organizations are vital to making meaningful change in the world and they have significant amounts of untapped potential in their data. Unfortunately, many nonprofits lack the strategies, skills, and guidance to make better decisions based on their data.
Join us for Common Good Vermont’s Spring Nonprofit Luncheon on April 18th at Noon at the Double Tree in South Burlington to learn how “big data” is completely transforming how companies drive their decision making and how Vermont nonprofits can tap the potential of their data, make better decisions and achieve improved community outcomes.
