Integra recognizes that effective knowledge management and learning activities can leverage and enhance the utility of evaluations, research, assessments, and pilots. We identify priority topics of learning and appropriate KML solutions based on the needs of each target audience. By synthesizing, tracking, and reporting project findings, development decisions are better informed and have greater impact.
Integra provides a blended knowledge management and learning approach to facilitate evidence-based decision-making, learning, and adaptive management among our clients. Our blended approach combines independent, virtual, and in-person learning tools, trainings, and techniques to maximize accessibility.
Our approach combines three key elements:
- Independent learning
- Virtual interaction
- In-person engagement
This approach recognizes that individuals have different comfort levels with CLA approaches; some prefer face-to-face interactions or lack the time to participate in online communities, while others prefer access to online resources.
Key tenants of our KML practice include the following values:
- Building Leadership is an important part of strengthening and institutionalizing CLA and establishing trusting relationships within organizations and beyond with key partners and stakeholders.
- Facilitating collaboration and leadership opportunities, by building local partnerships and the various roles and functions that may need to play given the importance of leadership and broad engagement.
- On-the-Job Coaching and Training – Collaboration and learning are worthwhile pursuits, yet those investments will only yield maximum results when an organization systematically applies lessons learned into actionable improvements.
- Communities of Practice help people to capitalize on different mechanisms for capturing and sharing knowledge and creating spaces of trust for people to share, assist one another through challenges, and stay current in their field.
- Supporting learning agenda development and refinement to address knowledge gaps. This could include working closely with the client to craft learning questions, developing data collection plans, and implementing activities to address data gaps.
Tools & Methods:
All learning tools and techniques are interactive, adult learning methodologies, and reinforce our core principles of intersectionality, systems-thinking, data-driven decision-making, and local knowledge.
