This is the first in a series of quick guides produced by the Technical and Operational Performance Support (TOPS) Program to improve knowledge sharing and program learning by development practitioners. The guide focuses on identifying appropriate formats and approaches for presentations, group discussions and problem solving sessions that will maximize peer-to-peer learning and agenda-setting for the future. 

The quick guide format, it is hoped, will make a number of easily adopted approaches and techniques accessible to a broad swathe of development practitioners.
