This paper captures some of our ideas about the patterns of learning
established within the DFID-funded programme Mobilising Knowledge for
Development (Phase 2, MK4D2) and some of the processes we have in place
for capturing learning. MK4D2 is a relatively large programme of work
designed to strengthen the knowledge intermediary sector.
Large programmes need to learn, it is helpful to capture big and small
lessons. We have found two tools that seem to be helping us and this
paper outlines the tools in its second half. This paper also points to
some of our early lessons – both good and bad – with the aim of
contributing to the strengthening of the sector.
