Introduces a range of tools for being more influential in bringing about evidence-based policy and practice change. The tools were developed by the ODI (Overseas Development Institute) Research and Policy in Development Programme (RAPID). In this videoed workshop participants had the opportunity to try out the Alignment, Interest and Influence Matrix (AIIM) tool, which is […]
This handbook describes research tools, context assessment tools, communication tools, and policy influence tools. They include episode studies, force field analysis, the marketing mix and getting to yes. These tools for policy impact are specifically geared towards the needs of researchers and were produced by the Overseas Development Institute as part of its Research and […]
We live in an increasingly interconnected world where there are few simple policy solutions to complex, often “wicked” problems, and an increasing number of stakeholders with multiple, often divergent incentives are involved in decision-making. While there is often convincing research-based evidence about what works and what doesn’t work, there is no simple mechanism to translate […]
“For policy to bring positive change to people, it needs to be informed by the best available evidence and local knowledge. Producing robust evidence is just part of the policy change; we need to look at where that evidence is – or isn’t – being used by governments, and why. And while we have seen […]
Jeremy Heimans compares what he calls “new power” with “old power”. New power examples such as Airbnb, Kickstarter, LinkedIn and the Obama (USA) Presidency campaign, involve the deployment of mass participation and peer coordination, value transparency and networked governance and work like an electric current.

This video outlines the fundamentals of risk perception and their implications for assessing and making decisions under uncertainty. It describes experiments that evaluate the relationship between an expert’s status and their ability to estimate uncertain facts. It describes procedures that improve the accuracy and conditioning of expert estimates of facts. Finally, it outlines the results […]

Five primary steps in the scenario process are charted: (1) defining project boundaries (2) determining the driving forces (3) analysing the driving forces (4) generating scenarios and (5) scenario transfer to allow visualisation of scenario outputs as a story. The first four steps involved scientific experts, public administrators, and regional planners and managers. The fifth […]
