Learnings since A360’s 2018 Mid-Term Evaluation

What is it?

A technical brief capturing what we learned and how we pivoted following our external 2018 mid-term evaluation (MTE).

How we used it?

As a learning project, A360 used the MTE to support corrections and adaptive management over the course of its two-and-a-half-years of implementation, from late 2018 to present-day 2020.

These course corrections can largely be summarized as an intentional shift in priorities — away from a streamlined ‘minimum viable product’ focused on cost-efficiency, to a ‘recommended viable product’ that balanced cost objectives with deeper investments in program quality, client experience and sustainable impact.

This technical brief offers considerations for future implementation.
