Exercise: Selecting Indicators to Monitor KM Tools and Techniques

The purpose of this exercise is to help participants think through selecting meaningful indicators to measure KM Tools and Techniques. The objectives are:

Mobilize and Monitor

This presentation outlines Step 4 (Mobilize and Monitor) of the Knowledge Management Road Map. In Step 3 (Create and Iterate), you developed new knowledge management (KM) tools and techniques or tailored existing ones to meet your audiences’ needs and bridge knowledge gaps. Now it is time to put these into action. For example, if you developed a publication such as a job aid, it will now be put to use in the appropriate setting.

Icebreaker: KM Typologies

Icebreakers are a common way to kick off training events or meetings, especially when not all participants know each other. They are a fun way for participants to get to know one another and to foster team building. This particular icebreaker based on knowledge management (KM) typologies was developed to raise awareness of KM as a valuable discipline by making the work of KM more accessible and personal. It is also meant to highlight the KM work that many people are already engaged in on an as-needed basis and showcase KM’s interdisciplinary nature.

Step 4 Trainer Guide

The Trainer Guide to each training module in the KM Training Package should be the starting point for the Trainer when developing training sessions around each module. The Trainer Guide describes the purpose of the training module, the total estimated time needed to deliver the module, and learning objectives of the module, and it provides a detailed sample agenda outlining how to piece together the different presentations, exercises, and breaks into a coherent session.

Sample Needs Assessment Report: Ouagadougou Partnership

This is a sample needs assessment conducted for the Ouagadougou Partnership, a coalition of government officials, religious leaders, civil society members, and youth representatives from nine countries—Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, and Togo—working in collaboration with donors to improve family planning outcomes in the region.

KM Index for Global Health

The Knowledge Management Index (KM Index) is an assessment tool, developed by The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project, to examine an organization or project’s use of KM practices, identify opportunities for improvement and, map out an action plan to strengthen the KM capacity. The KM Index measures the capacity in four fundamental KM practice areas: 1) organizational structure (KM vision and strategy), 2) learning opportunities (professional development), 3) internal KM culture (seeking out and sharing knowledge), and 4) KM for global health (effort to advance global health agenda).

Conducting Health Information Needs Assessments

The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) project developed this guide in order to walk others through the process of assessing information needs among individuals working at different levels of the health system; to share lessons learned and tips for various methodologies; and to provide tools that can be used or adapted in future assessments.

Sample Needs Assessment Concept Note
