Using Rapid Cycle Learning to Infuse a Culture of Continuous Learning

How do we go about setting and answering key learning questions that will both build real-time evaluation capacity and feed into program implementation and outcomes achievement? Rapid cycle learning (RCL) has been used in places as varied as the military, the private sector, emergency response, and healthcare. As evaluators, we can use RCL to institutionalize regular reflective practice, apply multiple lenses and perspectives, and facilitate ongoing course correction based on real-time data.

This workshop will provide participants with an overview of RCL’s origins and fit within the evaluation world. Participants will then have hands-on practice planning for RCL within an evaluation approach and using RCL tools such as after action review, pre-mortems, and text polling.

Participants will also discuss the challenges of using RCL, including creating organizational change for RCL use, and will develop ways to address these challenges within their evaluation work.
