Results Based Accountability RBA is a framework for working with outcomes and indicators. Using RBA together with DoView® software and DoView® planning can make your life a lot easier. 




Draw a DoView® outcomes model to show the underlying outcomes you’re trying to achieve which can then be measured with RBA indicators. Below is an example of a drill-down page about offenders within a DoView® outcomes model for restorative justice (a process where an offender meets with their victims).

Tag the boxes in the DoView®  model to mark-up which boxes are related to each of the different types of RBA indicators.

Copy and paste your indicators onto another page in DoView®  to set them out in the traditional RBA format. When you ‘clone’ your indicators from one page to another within your DoView® model, if you edit them on one page this means they'll change everywhere they appear within the DoView® file.

‘Turning the curve’ in RBA is an additional area where DoView®  can add value to RBA. Turning the curve is a process whereby stakeholders meet to plan how they can collectively achieve outcomes. DoView® collaborative planning can be usd to get a group of stakeholders to work out how they can collaborate to bring about change. Here is an example
