Implementing Knowledge Strategies: Lessons from International Development Agencies

This study synthesizes 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 the comprehensive Knowledge Strategies Framework, which bears close resemblance to the framework used by the ODI to assess complex processes of change within the development and humanitarian sector. The dimensions of this new Knowledge Strategies Framework are mapped out as: organisational knowledge, organisational links, organisational contexts, and external factors. The section "Findings from Organisational Profiles" (pages 14-28) has a list of questions for your knowledge audit as well. There is also a section on "Measuring the costs and benefits" on pp. 24-25, which is relevant to those looking for monitoring and evaluation tools.
