Sharing Lessons from the Field: The U.S. Global Development Lab's STIP Integration Report
When the U.S. Global Development Lab commissioned a study to better understand how field colleagues understood and took steps to integrate science, technology, innovation, and/or partnerships (STIP) into their work, we used a CLA approach to make the research and dissemination process into a learning exercise. We did this by developing a set of learning questions about STIP integration at USAID, conducting over 100 interviews with primarily Agency staff as well as some key partners from three missions, and analyzing and distilling the findings into lessons learned and recommendations. Next, we developed a plan to disseminate the findings among relevant stakeholders in the Agency, as well as integrated the lessons and case studies we gathered into our STIP Integration Training.
