More about RBA™

RBA™ is more than a research and evaluation model – it is a common sense process that will help your organisation to meet its vision, mission and strategic priorities linked to people wellbeing.  RBA™ enables organisations to use their data to demonstrate how they make a positive and measurable difference to clients and communities.  In this webinar Sharon Shea will introduce the RBA™ methodology and how you can use it to show the impact of your work.

RBA™ supports you to identify if anyone is better off (client outcomes) as a result of the work you deliver. Importantly, it looks at both quantity and quality, making this a valuable tool for not for profit and government agencies seeking to continuously improve on delivery, performance and partnering for outcomes.

RBA™ has been adopted by the government in its government-wide approach to NGO Contracting.  If you have government contracts or outcomes-based funding, this is a tool that could help you get ahead, in your funding relationship.
