Share Advances in Knowledge Through Relevant Pathways

  1. Con­tribute to the evi­dence base
  2. Share what you have learned with rel­e­vant audi­ences so that they can ben­e­fit from your knowl­edge and experience
  • Doc­u­ments such as reports, white papers and lessons learned
  • Your work-prod­ucts, e.g., sit­u­a­tion analy­sis diagram
  • Learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties, e.g., webi­na­rs or presentations

Cap­tur­ing and shar­ing knowl­edge can be a high­ly lever­aged con­ser­va­tion strat­e­gy, ensur­ing that the broad­er con­ser­va­tion com­mu­ni­ty ben­e­fits from your expe­ri­ence. All too often, we omit this very impor­tant step. When we do so, we lose impor­tant oppor­tu­ni­ties for lever­age and advance­ment, we risk mak­ing oth­ers rein­vent what we have already invent­ed, and all too often we repeat fail­ures. By tak­ing the time to reflect on what you have learned, and then shar­ing it appro­pri­ate­ly, you can have an impact far beyond your own strat­e­gy’s phys­i­cal or the­mat­ic boundaries.

Minimum Standard Questions
  1. Are knowledge products and planned dissemination pathways tailored to specific, target audiences?
  2. Has the team reviewed intangible lessons and shared ideas for communicating these through peer-learning opportunities?
  3. If major process-based or knowledge advances were made through the effort, has a Lessons Learned or Case Study document been considered?
FAQS Show All
Doesn’t it take too much time to document what we have learned?
Isn’t it enough to publish or post what we have learned? Won’t people find what they need online?
