Benefits of learning for your organisation
Learning from outcomes can strengthen your organisation by allowing you to review your work effectively using evidence about what works. This supports you to improve and refine the services you provide. It can help you identify innovative approaches and contribute to your annual reports to stakeholders.
Learning from your project's outcomes and how these were achieved may inform your organisation's strategic planning, implementing and reviewing processes. Learning from how you are achieving your outcomes can provide insight into how you plan and operate internally or work with external partners.
Use your outcomes information to highlight your success. You could distribute a summary of your key outcomes and learning to other projects and organisations you know, make it available to your beneficiaries, or use it to apply for funding to continue or develop your project. Even learning from what does not work or from unexpected outcomes can be very valuable in developing new approaches or contributing to policy development and debate.
