What they have in common are flexible approaches to people- and evidence-based inquiry, group problem-solving, strategic planning, and evaluation. The methods we have developed and tested over the years show how knowledgeable actors can get out of the “expert” mode, into an action-learning mindset that is both rigorous and truly collaborative. Here are four key ways we can help you to achieve this.
- Training. Our introductory and advanced workshops are based on the principle of learning by doing. Acquire skills in participatory action research by immediately applying tools and process design concepts to topics that matter to you. SAS2 Dialogue training can lead to recognition as part of the broader community of Instructors.
- Action research. The partners in SAS2 Dialogue will work with you to assess the problems, actors and options needed to answer the Why? question and build understanding and motivation.
- Planning for change. At SAS2 Dialogue, we can help you answer the Where to? question by planning well-defined goals, a timeline, and steps to move situations forward.
- Evaluating projects and processes. Using SAS2 tools, our experienced people help you answer the So What? question by assessing results against project goals using well-defined criteria or progress markers.
We support your goal of achieving dynamic learning systems using your intelligence and knowledge and the skillful means we have developed in working with people and organizations from around the world. We are committed to creating dialogue and supporting rigorous thinking!
