  4. 4. Lessons learned: success factors (1) THINK BIG: the vision of scaling up as an integral part of programme planning  A long-term vision and a scaling up road map will facilitate the early identification of risks and opportunities. Ownership and involvement of key stakeholders  Strong support and ownership of national decision makers and influential persons/organisations is a major condition for success Multi-level approach  Projects should work on several levels to facilitate the interplay between pilot projects and policy development Good evaluation of pilot projects‘ results  Only if projects bring about a genuine and visible contribution to resolving the problem, there is a chance that they will be rolled out swiftly. 10.11.2011 Seite 4 Page 4
  5. 5. Lessons learned: success factors (2) Standards and manuals  Guidelines and standards ensure the quality of scaling-up processes. Effective scaling up structures and incentive mechanisms  Change processes must be scaled up by professional institutions. Incentive mechanisms are needed that go beyond traditional regulatory systems ( financial and commercial incentives, competitions etc.) Communication and networking  Communication, awareness programmes and networking are key to informing, convincing and involving major stakeholders. Generous timescale and budget  Scaling up demands a long-term financing concept and patience on both the partner and the donor side. Appropriate financing strategies should be drawn up at an early stage. 10.11.2011 Seite 5 Page 5
