RBF in Organizational DNA

All organizations strive for results but most do not offer their employees an organizing frame or structured set of skills to achieve desired results. Between 2008-2015, a Seattle-based nonprofit, Building Changes , experimented with using Results Based Facilitation (RBF) as an organizing frame and set of skills.
The experiment with RBF produced progressive skill development as documented by annual self-evaluation and observation. In addition, staff and community members reported that the use of RBF skills contributed to making progress on agency and community results.
In 2016 Building Changes deemed the experiment a success and included building results leadership skills as a key component in its 2016-2020 Strategic Business Plan.
