MSH conducted an assessment in 2015 of a suite of leadership and management tools that it developed to champion a team-based, experiential learning approach. The tools are applied through carefully facilitated processes by trained facilitators and experts in organizational development, leadership, and management, and have all been applied with teams across government and non-governmental organizations and at different levels and health domains. The assessment investigated the continued use of these tools, and the short- and long-term benefits and results for various stakeholders.
The objective of the assessment was to support internal efforts to learn what is working and what is not, and offer recommendations and insights into ways that the tools, the process of application of the tool, and the measurement of results can be adjusted for maximum effectiveness. The findings also contributed to external reviews to examine the sustainability of the tools and approaches at scale.
Monica Biradavolu was hired as the qualitative consultant on the project. She collaborated with Tamara Hafner on developing the conceptual framework and conducting the literature review.
