The tools, software and theoretical insights of the SAS2 Dialogue approach have been applied in thousands of settings around the world. These include community economic development, workplace organization, educational reform and evaluation, local governance over land and natural resources, forest conflict, public sector planning, and many more. The experiences attest to the effectiveness and efficiency of collaborative inquiry in helping people do better planning, evaluation, and research. 


Repository  hosted by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) includes many reports on assessments and detailed plans or research protocols designed for particular contexts. Several full length M.A. and PhD theses are also available in the Repository. Other publications include:
