The renowned four-part, tool-based training series is coming to the Montshire Museum! Over four weeks participants are introduced to the key components of Results-Based Accountability, with a focus on program performance. No prior experience with RBA is necessary. Each three-hour workshop will introduce a tool or concept and allow ample time for teams to practice and receive feedback. By the end of the series, participants have walked through the process of embedding RBA into a program. Participants are encouraged to come in organizational teams, including management, staff, and board members, although individuals are welcome to join.
The training is held for four weeks, with about 90 minutes of work expected between trainings. Participants are expected to attend all four trainings.
The four workshops will progress as follows:
Day 1, Tuesday, October 4th: 9am - 12pm 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.
Day 2, Tuesday, October 11th: 9am - 12pm
The second day is devoted to working with data, identifying the headline measures that you will use to measure progress at your organization or program, and developing data collection strategies.
Day 3, Tuesday, October 18th: 9am - 12pm 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.
Day 4, Tuesday, October 25th: 9am - 12pm
The series comes to a close and we wrap up by answering lingering questions and discussing a culture of accountability in the work-place and organizational integration of RBA. Links are made to state-wide outcomes and indicators.
