Leadership and Management in Development - Bangkok, Thailand
I really enjoyed the programme. It's actualy experience sharing, very educative and motivating, with participants from diverse races.
My experience with IMA at Brighton, UK is memorable. I shared experiences with eight colleagues of six nationalities and became friends. I now have newer skills to handle my job in Nigeria.
I came to participate in a program and ended with receiving an exceptional gift: a voyage to improving and appreciating myself. Many thanks to IMA's experts.
It was fun and educating. I think that now I have changed into a new person interested in leaving and sharing knowledge.
Great opportunity to meet diverse experts.
For me it was a journey of self realisation, the techniques you used were really impressive.
IMA's results-based M&E training was exceptional. Great exercises, great learning!
The best training I've ever attended and would like to have participated on the full 2 weeks M&E course.
A great learning experience and very engaging. It opened my eyes to new ideas and ways of thinking - very motivating.
I recommend IMA's M&E for results 10 day course, it is fantastic.
How can ToC and KM dovetail to support the development of your organisational strategy?
The work we are doing with AVERT in Brighton is a good example. AVERT called on us to support their thinking process as they develop their next 5-year Strategic Plan. As a starting point we explored the team’s thinking around AVERT’s work and reason for being: working globally on HIV and AIDS prevention. We discussed the importance of personal and organisational assumptions, highlighting how much we need to be aware of these as they frame our view of reality and of how social change happens. The team have been developing their Theory of Change over the past few weeks and we are now using our Knowledge Management approach to look at the knowledge (and information, culture, ways of operating) that AVERT needs to access and to provide, both internally and externally, to support and improve the work it is doing. The workshops have enabled the team to articulate their personal perspectives on how the organisation functions; review operational rationale; enrich institutional memory and develop new ideas, while all the time fostering ownership of the joint process.
