USAID 2017 Collaborating, Learning and Adapting Case Competition

Date

May 14, 2017

Do you collaborate, learn, and adapt in your work? We want to hear about it!

The submission period for the 2017 Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting Case Competition kicks off on Monday, May 1!

Who? The competition is open to all types of individuals and organizations working with USAID and captures real-life case studies of USAID staff and implementing partners using a CLA approach for organizational learning and better development outcomes.

What? 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.

Why? 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 our blog, Twitter, and at CLA events in Washington, DC and beyond. Over the past two years, we’ve collected and published over 100 case studies of CLA in action. Browse the 2015 and 2016 cases. 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.
