Every month, I host a roundtable that brings together top minds in the learning and development space to network, learn, and support each other as we all keep up with the latest in the Learning and Development space and grow our organizations. Join us virtually or in person (at the UN in Nairobi), and enjoy access to an engaged, excited group of your peers along with access to my portal of resources and 5+ years of meetings!
This month’s workshop is on adaptive management. We all know that working together, solving problems innovatively and experiential learning is fun and rewarding for any organization, but have we realized that playing games and use our hands when building pathways, structures and solutions will create better end products and services? That creating together and thinking aloud while doing so can allow an organization to achieve better outcomes?
All development organizations, large and small, encounter challenges and bottlenecks that prevent them from achieving the highest results and make the impact they envisioned. QED and I have developed a game that can be played by any team in any development organization to solve any problem and design pathways to improve results.
The game – Makusudi (Purpose in Swahili) – is an adaptive management tool and is used by teams in an organization when they need to figure out how to meet challenges, address problems and find ways to correct the course. It is currently used by USAID in Uganda, USAID in Egypt and headquarters of development organisations in Washington DC.
Come and play the game and have a conversation about how to build an organization that promotes collaboration and learning to allow for course corrections and adaptations. November 8, 10am to noon EAT.
Workshop leader Charlotta Sandin has 20 years of professional experience in strategy and policy development in public administration and extensive experience in Organizational Development, M&E and Quality Assurance system management, including CLA in USAID.
