Tackling complex problems requires doing work in ways it hasn’t been done before – if what we’ve always done was enough, we wouldn’t be facing the problem! At Spark, we leverage real-time, data-driven learning to steadily adapt our strategies, always focusing on the outcomes.
Strategic learning tools and processes offer ways to capitalize on data and make time for opportunities to both learn and adapt strategies in response to changing environments or new information. Using strategic learning can help improve outcomes and build commitment to causing meaningful changes, in relatively straightforward settings, as well as complex, messy settings.
This toolkit is designed to take the concept of data-driven strategic learning and bring it to life, making it accessible to non-profits, foundations, and other organizations or collaborations seeking to improve strategies and learning.
