In the context of USAID’s increasing focus on local solutions and other donors’ efforts to shift more resources toward local institutional capacity building, applying the science of organizational learning and behavior change is a growing imperative. This one and a half day workshop, co-sponsored by APLU’s Knowledge Center for Advancing Development through Higher Education, is designed to help practitioners incorporate USAID’s performance improvement methodology (aka: HICD Framework) into their international efforts.
Day 1 of the workshop, September 24, will be led by two leading HICD experts, Steven J. Kelly and Ingrid Guerra-Lopez, of KNO Worldwide, who have over two decades of experience working on USAID HICD projects in almost 30 countries. Day 2 will feature a roundtable discussion among the workshop participants and an experienced panel of HICD project implementers who are currently engaged in USAID projects.
The workshop will cover:
- An overview of USAID’s HICD framework and the institutional performance improvement model that inspired it;
- Measurement of HICD, in the context of USAID’s evaluation framework;
- How to effectively manage “two clients” in donor-funded HICD work;
- Resources to learn more about the HICD framework and to use it in the field; and
- Discussion of current and recent major USAID-funded HICD projects, and future trends.
