A couple of weeks ago, Global Integrity gathered up a bunch of markers and reams of flipchart paper, and headed down to the a conference room in the basement of the OpenGov Hub for our second quarterly review of 2017. Our quarterly reviews are an opportunity to discuss how things are going in our different programs, to reflect together on emerging lessons and challenges, and to strategize on how we can strengthen our effectiveness in the months to come. They’re one of the many ways in which we’re implementing our learning plan, and putting our commitment to data-driven learning and adaptation into practice.
To kick things off, each of our program leads gave quick presentations in which they laid out: a challenge that they’ve faced in the past few months in implementing their program and driving progress toward the intended outcomes; how they’ve adapted to that challenge; and the results of that adaptation. After each presentation, we split into pairs, and spent a few minutes reflecting on what had been shared, and thinking through other ways in which we might tackle the specified challenge.
After doing this for each program, we brought it all back together, working as a group to identify cross-programmatic lessons, and figure out how we might apply those lessons to our work moving forward.
