Strategic Planning and Results Based Accountability
We work with you—whether a new or an established organization—to develop or refine your mission, vision and values. Our comprehensive approach to planning includes internal and external environmental analysis, critical success factors, goal setting, and action steps. We know you want your plans to come to life—so we build in monitoring and measurement. We can guide you through the Results Based Accountability process in wide regard among funders and grant providers, including the State of Connecticut. With the common sense, plain language and usefulness that characterize RBA, NetMark’s planning experts can help your organization stay focused on achieving quality of life results for your populations, not just how well it performs programs and services.
