Mark Friedman, author of “Trying Hard is Not Good Enough” has recently launched a Facebook Group to bring together practitioners of Results/Outcome Based Accountability (RBA/OBA) to share ideas, experiences and good practice. As of March 2012, the site has 180 followers from around the world and features frequently updated stories, successes and challenges. What strikes me is that despite different cultures, contexts and legislative frameworks, colleagues from around the world are all basically grappling with the same issues and more often than not, the same frustrations. The group collectively represents an enormous international pool of skills and experience and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being part of the group, and learning from it. If you’re interested in RBA/OBA, I very much recommend you check it out.
