USAID's 2017 Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) Case Competition - Act Now and Submit a Case (Deadline: 16 June 2017)

Posted by dmarotta on 1 Jun 2017

Colleagues,

Do you collaborate, learn, and adapt in your work? We want to hear about it! USAID/PPL just launched the third annual Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) case competition, and the submission period ends Friday, June 16.

All types of individuals and organizations working with USAID are invited to enter. The competition captures real-life case studies of USAID staff and implementing partners using a CLA approach for organizational learning and better development outcomes. This is not a call for traditional success stories; we want to hear what’s working well, what you’re struggling with, and what you’ve learned along the way. It can be about something big, or about one small practice that made an important difference to your work.

Your case submission will showcase your team’s innovation and expertise, helping us all move the needle on strategic collaboration, continuous learning, and adaptive management. All eligible case studies will be featured on USAID Learning Lab and may be shared via communications channels such as the USAID Learning Lab blog, @USAIDLearning and at CLA events in Washington, DC and beyond.

Five winning cases will be recognized at a CLA event in Washington, DC and one representative of each case will receive expense-paid travel to the event.

You can find all of the competition details on Learning Lab at http://usaidlearninglab.org/cla-case-competition.

Thanks!
