Cases in Outcome Harvesting: Ten pilot experiences identify new learning from multi-stakeholder projects to improve results

World Bank

Summary: Starting in 2012, the World Bank undertook pilot learning to explore how outcome harvesting tools might help project teams and clients to manage knowledge and learn from complex and difficult to monitor development processes. In outcome harvesting, teams identify, monitor and learn from changes in social actors, by harvesting bites of outcome information with colleagues, partners, and stakeholders.

In these pilot experiences, teams applied outcome harvesting tools in 10 ongoing initiatives in strategic thematic areas. The process encouraged dialogue among the teams and clients and answered learning questions to maximize the benefits of the interventions, institutional sustainability of results, and involvement of the right mix of actors.

Attached is the complete report from the pilot experience, showcasing all 10 cases and including forward-looking suggestions. The tools used by the teams to pilot outcome harvesting are also being documented in a toolkit.
