  • Continuous process of plan evaluation & updating

    • Allow space & time for reflection

    • Accept failure as a learning opportunity


Effective decision making adaptive adapted planning2

Effective decision-making – Adaptive & adapted planning

  • Opportunities for knowledge exchange

    • Capacity-building within organisations

    • Include researchers & delivery partners in experiments/pilots (KTP)

    • ‘Bridging organisations’ to collate & disseminate experiences
