  12. 25. Why are we doing all this?
  13. 26. Drivers <ul><li>Address some problems: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Staff and partners full of knowledge; Lots of info </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is it shared? Communicated? Available? Accessible? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Put to use? Learned from? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Grab some opportunities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CDP and programmatic approach </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aid effectiveness, need to work differently and better </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Web2 ‘open’ and accessible toolkit, also with south </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Out of necessity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Our collective knowledge is our ultimate asset </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It needs to flow and travel, and be used </li></ul></ul>
  14. 27. Project Hypothesis <ul><li>As the Alliance focuses around several key roles - strategic financing, brokerage, capacity development, and public support delivered through a programmatic approach – a critical task is to ‘re-tool’ the staff to effectively document, communicate, and share knowledge and information across the Alliance and with partners. </li></ul><ul><li>To improve practice; to enhance quality; to enable partnership; to enhance impact </li></ul>
  15. 28. Project Components <ul><li>ComPart South: Enhance the strategic information, knowledge and communication capacities of alliance partners in the South – so they can operate more effectively in a networked environment, contribute on an equal basis to alliance supported programs and projects, and learn from and share their experiences more effectively. [2008-2010] </li></ul><ul><li>ComPart North: The major intended result is that Alliance staff members will become more aware of ways they can use knowledge sharing approaches, tools, and applications to support and achieve their objectives and programmatic purposes. Many will also try out and test some knowledge sharing tools, learn new skills, and have begun to employ them in their daily work with colleagues and partners. [2007] </li></ul>
  16. 29. The Approach <ul><li>Mobilize information and knowledge assets across the alliance; with partners </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There is much; it is scattered </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Encourage sharing and open exchange of information and knowledge </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sharing is very dependent on personalities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enable easy ‘user generation’ and sharing of information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Much that is collected is not really communicated </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Based around ‘user-generated’ content; encourages ‘remixing’ </li></ul><ul><li>Implies behavioural changes; also new ‘toolkit’ </li></ul>
  17. 30. Intended Results? <ul><li>Capitalise on the knowledge assets embedded in the ICCO alliance (staff) and partners </li></ul><ul><li>Make it ‘easy’ for staff, especially ‘facilitating’ staff to capture, document, and share knowledge and information </li></ul><ul><li>Make this information accessible to all staff; and external partners, in ways they can choose, and in ways they can remix </li></ul><ul><li>Put substance into the brokerage and capacity development parts of the programmatic approach </li></ul>
  18. 31. Partner Component <ul><li>build up north-south information exchange mechanisms and networks/communities on key themes of interest to the Alliance programs and the partner organizations. </li></ul><ul><li>reinforce individual and collective capacities of groups and organizations working in these themes to network, disseminate and exchange information and share knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>provide accessible multi-lingual information and analytical services on priority development themes and issues </li></ul><ul><li>interact with ‘enabling’ organizations, mainly in the South, to explore their capacities and interests to be part of the network </li></ul>
  19. 32. Alliance Component <ul><li>assist Learning Networks establish and deliver a ‘knowledge and learning support facility’ for the ICCO Alliance. </li></ul><ul><li>prototype several knowledge sharing applications with interested individuals and teams to test and demonstrate how they might contribute to project and program goals of Alliance members </li></ul><ul><li>communicate and report on knowledge sharing activities in the Alliance, raise awareness, share stories, generate food for thought, learning and action, making this work visible. </li></ul><ul><li>set up and monitor a range of knowledge sharing ‘content’ products targeted to the thematic interests of Alliance members. Explore new ways to selectively disseminate and share information. </li></ul>
  20. 33. Where are we Now? <ul><li>Main focus on Alliance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mainly ICCO? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Focus around Compart ‘Flowers’ toolkit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mainly wikis? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Training and awareness for Alliance staff </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Some enthusiastic champions? </li></ul></ul>
  21. 34. Concerns, Questions? <ul><li>Too much focus on tools? </li></ul><ul><li>How embedded in ‘business’ processes? </li></ul><ul><li>Let a thousand flowers boom? </li></ul><ul><li>Connect with rest of the alliance info/comm architectures? </li></ul><ul><li>Engaging the south partners? </li></ul>
