Rapid Advocacy Learning Tools

Intense Period Debriefs •

Occur shortly after policy windows or intense activity periods • Gathers in-depth and real-time information Convening of either a focus group or the conducting of individual interviews with advocacy stakeholders to capture data about advocates’ recent experiences. Captures: • •

• •

The public mood and political context during the policy window; What happened and how the campaign members responded to eve nts, especially as related to actions that occurred behind closed door s; Perspective on the outcome(s) achieved or not achieved; How strategies might be adjusted in hindsight.

Intense Period Debriefs Sample Questions 1. What events triggered this intense period? 2. How was the organization’s response determined? Who w as responsible for that decision? How was that decision co mmunicated to partners and allies? 3. Which elements of the organization’s response worked well ? Which elements could have been improved? 4. What was the outcome of the intense period? Was the resu lt positive or negative? 5. What insights will you take away from this experience that might inform your strategies going forward?

Comparison and Triangulation “A Platinum Standard of Rigor” For Impact Evaluation Comparison and Triangulation of: • • • • •

Alternate theories of action (casual pathways) Before and after, counterfactual Contexts (location, time, scale) Multiple types of information and data (Competing) stakeholder perspectives

Rigorous Comparison and Triangulation Advances in Case Study Designs Case studies still a central “method” and can be made more rigorous with relatively small investments Case studies essential for analysis of: • • •

context – location, time, scale, scope descriptive inference: construct validity causal processes: internal and external validity

(simple, complex, complicated, equifinality, etc..) • • • •

multiple results (outputs, outcomes, impacts) unintended results/unexpected consequences triangulate qualitative and quantitative data useful communication and reporting tool

Rigorous Comparison and Triangulation Advances in Case Study Designs Purposes and types of Case Studies:

• Generating theory of change – “inductive” • Elaborating TOC – “plausibility probes” • Evaluating TOC – “least likely” and “most likely” “tough tests”, “counterfactual thought experiments” • Innovating theory of change – “deviant case studies” of exceptional “outliers”

Rigorous Comparison and Triangulation Advances in Case Study Designs Case Study Methods and Tools: • Process-Tracing • Analytic Induction • Structured-focused comparison • General (and Specific) Elimination • Typological Theorizing • Increasing Observations • Data-bases of Case Studies … and so many more…
