Overview of learning and knowledge-based strategies among donor agencies, multilaterals, NGOs, research institutes, and institutions based in the South, including national governments, regional organizations, and indigenous NGOs. This guide is aimed at staff working in all such organizations. The 30 tools and techniques in this book are divided into five categories: Strategy Development; Management Techniques; Collaboration Mechanisms; Knowledge Sharing and Learning Processes; and Knowledge Capture and Storage. The tools vary from simple, requiring nothing more than the desire to try something new to more complex, which call for significant planning and resources if they are to be delivered effectively. The toolkit provides an introduction and orientation to a broad subject, as well as suggestions for further resources that might prove useful for the reader. It aims to present entry points and references to the wide range of tools and methods that have been used to facilitate improved knowledge and learning in the development and humanitarian sectors.
