4. Adaptive Implementation

Never Stop Learning

We’re not shy about our end goal: a future where girls and young women have the tools they need to pursue the lives they want, with contraception as a critical first step.

We know the road to that future is paved with complexity, so we set up systems to help navigate it well. On a regular basis, A360 country teams unite to think critically, using mixed methods data and ongoing partnerships with youth and local actors to continuously improve as we scale.

Together, these Adaptive Implementation teams learn from our implementation sites, considering whether and how to adapt for optimal results, while maintaining fidelity to the ‘core’ of what makes our interventions deliver value for girls.

This powerful process will take you beyond standard metrics. Your teams will come together in unexpected ways, breaking down silos, learning from the unexpected, and gaining tools to continually assess the quality of A360’s implementation and responsiveness to local needs—as seen through the eyes of our partners and the girls we serve.
