This elevator speech and was developed by the Knowledge Management Working Group (now the Global Health Knowledge Collaborative (GHKC)) to provide an effective and adaptable argument and pitch for the development and implementation of a knowledge management (KM) strategy for a project or organization in global health and development. Target audiences for the speech could include organizational CEOs and CFOs, senior management, project managers, donors, and even, in some cases, co-workers. The matrix of the elevator speech provides quick and easy access to the key components of the speech. The matrix is organized by audience and focus area with key points and statistics to support each focus area. The “How Good is Your Elevator Speech?” guide is designed specifically for USAID-funded programs.
