The Program Cycle is USAID’s operational model for planning, implementing, assessing, and adapting development programming in a given region or country. The Program Cycle is how policy gets translated into action and how USAID supports countries on their Journey to Self-Reliance.
USAID Learning Lab hosts three toolkits to provide USAID staff and implementing partners with a curated set of resources to plan, implement and integrate monitoring, evaluating and CLA practices into their programs.
Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) is a framework and a set of practices for strengthening organizational learning and the conditions that enable it throughout the Program Cycle to improve our development effectiveness, and support countries on their Journey to Self-Reliance.
What is the Role of Evidence and Data in Organizational Learning Efforts?
Stacey and Piers discuss the question, "what is the role of evidence and data in organizational learning efforts?" The three themes that emerged are: While everyone seems to agree that data and evidence play a vital role in organizational learning, and making the case for investing in it, approaches and perspectives vary; that an organizational culture that values evidence and learning is important, and that data and evidence are important for accountability and absolutely essential for continuous learning and impact.
