  • 4. LAB 2 PART 1 • PART 1 - TRANSLATING PROBLEMS INTO RESULTS • PART 2 - REVIEWING AND ENHANCING EVIDENCE BASE TO SUPPORT ACTION URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 4
  • 5. KEY CONCEPTS PROBLEM = The key problem(s) you have identified in Lab 1 Problem Tree on your theme RESULT = The initial impact of an intervention in terms of how the well being of people is modified by our action URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 5
  • 6. ACTION >INPUT> OUTPUT > RESULT URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 6 Input = resources put into the measure Output = tangible product of the activity Result = what is achieved as good for the recipient Examples: - Training courses for employment - Business start-up advice - Collaboration workshops and networking - Refurbisihing city spaces Examples: - Sustained employment - Survival of new business - Better cross-cutting collaboration - Increased well-being and satisfaction of citizens, attracting investment Action = an operation to deliver results Examples: - Number of completed courses - Advice process model - Workshop curriculums - City model for space use Examples: - Resources required for an activity (money, time, manpower)

  • 12. EVIDENCE • Evidence is used at different stages of the project process; • Evidence has been used of course already in defining the problem, and in thinking about solutions; • Evidence is also used during the process and at the end via monitoring and evaluation; • Here we concentrate on broadening the horizons of evidence in the initial stages of the process. URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 12 Evidence at planning stage Evidence and monitoring during project Evaluation at the end of project
  • 13. SOURCES OF EVIDENCE You are not alone…You may learn from: • Those who have addressed the same or similar issues • The past: What has been tried before? Why it worked/did not work? • Colleagues in your own city: could it be that similar actions are tried in other city quarters, how to use their lessons? • From service users and citizens: getting feedback and ideas and co-creating? • Other cities: Learning from good practices in other cities, national and abroad? • Science, research and data: Learning from scientific studies about the topic at hand? How to find them, how to “translate” them in a language accessible for policymakers? • Using expertise and any ‘thinking out of the box’: What type of experts would we need? How about inviting ‘unusual suspects’, someone who could really inspire and challenge us URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 13
  • 14. EVIDENCE EXPERIENCE TABLE (EES1) URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 14 Source of information, data and learning What type of information, data and learning sources you have used? What is your experience of using them? 1. City data and other statistics 2. Evidence from past/ earlier attempts 3. Colleagues in the city 4. Users and other stakeholders 5. Other cities that face the same problem, home or abroad 6. Science and research 7. Experts and any ’unusual suspects’
  • 15. ’UNUSUAL SUSPECTS’ • Experts or anybody coming from outside the people and organisations we usually use to inform us • In order to help us think out of the box, to have a fresh and critical look on what we are doing • To be challenged and inspired • To find new, creative ways of solving our problems • To broaden our horizons, to enhance our actions and • Get better results URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 15
  • 16. EXAMPLES OF ’UNUSUAL SUSPECTS’ Copenhagen Job Centre: • Hired Anthropologists, using co-creative methods with customers, and made a ’walk through’ and analysis of the whole job centre service process and then together with staff and customers came up with innovations City of Swindon, UK: • Hired voluntary organisation people who lived for weeks with troubled families, in their daily lives, in order to bring the message ’from the inside’ for reforms of services, which were not delivering URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 16
  • 17. TASK IN LAB 2 1. ”BUZZ”: Discuss with the person next to you – What sources of evidence have you used? What are your experiences of using them? 2. Mark sources you have used in the Evidence Experience Table 3. Review the outcome of the tally and discuss: 1. Concentration? Gaps? 2. Share experiences of using different sources 3. Where should cities improve their evidence? How? URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 17
  • 18. TASK IN ULSG WORK SESSION 2: EVIDENCE ENHANCEMENT • What evidence is there relating to your theme on Allium? • Are there gaps in the evidence? • How would you want to use different evidence to improve knowledge on your Allium Theme? 1. Discuss the questions above 2. Write ideas in Evidence Enhancement table 3. Indicate Priority order The filled EES2 POSTER is the Deliverable of ULSG Work Session 2 URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 18
  • 19. EVIDENCE ENHANCEMENT TABLE (EES2) URBACT LAB 1 SESSION 2 19 Source of evidence and learning How do you want to use these to improve the evidence base of your Theme in Allium Priority order 1 - 7 1. City data and other statistics 2. Evidence from past/ earlier attempts 3. Colleagues in the city 4. Users and other stakeholders 5. Other cities that face the same problem, home or abroad 6. Science and research 7. Experts and any ’unusual suspects’
