The learning wheel as a tool for systematizing knowledge
How to establish a culture of sharing, learning and innovation in an organization or project is one of the biggest challenges facing KM practitioners in development. During this workshop we will use a methodology called the LearningWheel to capture and systematize the experiences and ideas of participants and try to address this challenge. LearningWheel is a methodology for creating common frameworks for joint learning, action and knowledge management. It generates experience-based conceptual frameworks, building on the lessons and success-factors of practical examples in an analytical and appreciative manner. IFAD’s East and Southern Africa Division has used the LearningWheel methodology to develop a framework for operationalizing knowledge management in IFAD-supported projects, in collaboration with project staff. The methodology itself was developed by the Institute for People, Innovation and Change in Organizations (PICOTEAM).
