“Results Based Accountability”.  Over the past ten years the nonprofit world has made a dramatic shift toward this new model.  Important thought leaders in the philanthropic sector have called for this new level of accountability and most government contracts as well as foundation grants now call for specific outcomes and a system to manage those outcomes. 


Goals need to be established that reflect the outcomes that will be achieved as a result of the strategy that is being used.  A successful strategy will achieve measurable outcomes and those outcomes will be reflected in the goals.  Barbara Healy Associates has significant experience in leading a process that develops measurable outcomes and identifies the work needed to accomplish those outcomes.
