Live Review & Knowledge Synthesis
How to build the skills of program teams and professionals to transform their results and evidence into useful tools that inform and influence decision makers, investors and implementing agencies?
We have mentored program and research teams in our ‘live review and synthesis’ workshops. These have built the capacity of several hundred professionals worldwide.
