Collective Impact and RBA

Impact Collectif et R.A.R.

Collective Impact and RBA are a perfect fit. The idea of working together to produce community “impact” is at the heart of both bodies of work. And RBA compliments Collective Impact in other ways. Collective Impact literature sets out conditions for the success of community change efforts, and RBA provides specific methods to help partners meet those conditions. More and more places are describing their work in terms of implementing Collective Impact using RBA. In 2011, Deitre Epps from the Results Leadership Group authored an excellent analysis of the relationship between CI and RBA, entitled “Achieving ‘Collective Impact’ with Results-Based Accountability™.” (available on the and websites.) Attached is a new two-page paper that is a supplement to, not replacement for, Deitre’s excellent work. It will be used as a handout in some upcoming workshops. I hope you find it useful. Comments are most welcome.
