  1. Reflexive monitoring in agricultural innovation processesBarbara van Mierlo Communication and Innovation StudiesWageningen University

  2. Reflexive monitoring in agricultural innovation processes • Views on innovation • Monitoring in system innovation • Comparison with ‘classical’ monitoring • Suggestions for monitoring in extension reform

  3. Solar Home System in South Africa

  4. Grid-connected solar system in the NL

  5. “Old” view: Developed at special research institutes Technology Individual adoption “New” view: Emerging anywhere A process of developing hard-, soft- and orgware Complementary action Changing views on innovation(summary presentation Leeuwis 2007)

  6. Institutional bottlenecks land reform • Sectoral policy (e.g. slow release of funds) • Knowledge infrastructure • Physical infrastructure • Cultural meanings of land • Network failures • Market structure

  7. Land reform and reconceptualising extension mean system innovation • Co-evolutionary process of product and process innovations • Changes in routines, values and thinking of a diversity of interdependent actors • Institutionalised conditions are part of innovation processes

  8. Innovation activities and system innovation System innovation Results Activities aimed at innovation

  9. Role of reflexive monitoring Contributing to: system innovation Monitoring Results • Second order learning • Institutional change Activities aimed at innovation Process conditions • Heterogeneous network formation • Ambition

  10. Growing crops with future

  11. Contributingto: system innovation Monitoring Results Activities aimed at innovation Process conditions Growing crops with future

  12. Reflexive monitoring cycle Adaption of activities Reflection Observation • As much as possible: • Integrated • Collective • Embedded Analysis/ reporting

  13. Goal oriented monitoring and evaluation • Predefined results top-down • Linear relation between activities and results assumed • Quantitative, ‘objective’ indicators • For accountability

  14. Reflexive monitoring • Learning effects among the participants, but also unintended effects, ‘failures’, uncertainty, relevant developments in the context • Multi-causality and ambiguity • Flexible, dynamic process indicators given meaning by all stakeholders • For learning and system innovation

  15. Suggestions for monitoring the transformation of extension services, education and policy • Develop logframes with stakeholders, including new farmers • Build in moments of collective (and individual) reflection • Develop tools for taking perspective and monitoring ‘external’ developments

  16. Suggestions for monitoring the transformation of extension practices, education and policy • Take care of process conditions: • Heterogeneity • Ambition • Room to experiment • Track the quality of effects critically: • Second order learning • Institutional change • Competence development
