Implementing Knowledge Strategies: Lessons from Development Agencies

Ben Ramalingam

Summary: This study synthesises existing research on knowledge and learning in the development sector, and draws out eight key questions for examining related strategies and systems in development agencies. Together, these questions make up a comprehensive Knowledge Strategies Framework. The dimensions of this new Knowledge Strategies Framework are Organisational knowledge, Organisational links, Organisational contexts, and External factors.

The study then presents the analysis of data collected on current knowledge and learning practices in 13 selected case study organisations . This data was gathered via desk based reviews, interviews, consultations with agency staff and focus groups. The Knowledge Strategies Framework is used to analyse and synthesise these findings, to formulate the recommendations of the study, and to suggest key next steps.
