Do you collaborate, learn, and adapt in your work? USAID’s Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning’s Office of Learning, Evaluation and Research is now accepting submissions for the third-annual Collaborating, Learning and Adapting (CLA) Case Competition through Friday, June 16.
The CLA Case Competition captures real-life case studies of USAID staff and implementing partners using a CLA approach for organizational learning and better development outcomes. This is not a call for traditional success stories; we want to hear what’s working well, what you’re struggling with, and what you’ve learned along the way. It can be about something big, or about one small practice that made an important difference to your work. Your case submission will showcase your team’s innovation and expertise, helping us all move the needle on strategic collaboration, continuous learning, and adaptive management. All eligible case studies will be featured on ProgramNet, USAID Learning Lab and may be shared via blog posts and at CLA events in Washington, DC and beyond.
Five winning cases will be recognized at a CLA event in Washington, DC and one representative of each case will receive expense-paid travel to the event.
You can find all of the competition details on Learning Lab at http://usaidlearninglab.org/cla-case-competition. Please help us get the word out, and consider submitting a case. You'll be helping to build USAID's collection of practices and models that others can adapt and adopt to improve the Agency's development efforts.
