RE: How to define and identify lessons learned? | Eval Forward


IN MANY CASES, the so-called 'Lessons Learned' are —simply—, a listing of statements collected to comply with the relevant section in an evaluation report.

A true 'LESSON' should be drawn from actual-relevant implementation EXPERIENCE, and condense-compact real facts of RESULTS, which are aligned with the outlined ‘Theory of Change’ whilst pointing to measurable-verifiable IMPACT on the ground…Thus on effecting CHANGE in peoples’ communities and livelihoods.
