  • Stimulate a learning culture in your organization focused on policy influence,
  • Build their reputation and visibility and attract more and better support to their work, and
  • Organise what they are already doing so that it can be useful for Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning purposes -and let go of processes that may not be useful.
