Key messages infographic
Following our successful Realising Ambition conference in June 2015, we’ve created a short infographic summarising some of the key messages around our three themes of the conference: evidence, replication and collaboration.
We are producing 10 digital briefings over the course of Realising Ambition. Called Programme Insights, these briefings share some of our learning from the programme and are designed to support anyone undertaking or commissioning their own replication journey.
Please visit our publications page for a list of all our recent publications.
Catch22 interviews people involved with Realising Ambition about some of the key themes, including gathering and using evidence, replicating ‘what works’ and building the capacity of the voluntary sector.
Managing Realising Ambition: our learning on managing programmes (7 May 2015)
Ruth Marriott, Realising Ambition’s Programme Manager, talks about her experience of managing the programme and of working in partnership with the other members of the consortium and with the organisations delivering services. This podcast will be of particular interest to anyone managing a contract or grant that involves a number of different stakeholders, whether these stakeholders are also holding a management role in the programme or delivering within it.
Webinars on replication and evidence-base interventions
The Dartington Social Research Unit has produced a number of webinars on replication and developing promising innovations into evidence-based programmes.
- Developing intervention manuals: covering why projects need manuals; the challenges in using manuals; how programme manuals can be adapted; and how manuals should be written.
- Serving the right people: covering the how to select and screen to ensure your intervention serves the right people and the difference between need and demand.
- Developing a logic model: explains why logic models or theories of change are important and how to go about developing one.
- Defining intervention activities: covering the importance of specifying and distinguishing between core and flexible components of an intervention.
- Monitoring intervention fidelity: covering the importance of fidelity when developing and replicating interventions and the ways that fidelity can be measured.
- Specifying financial and human resources: focusing on how to specify both the financial and human resources need to deliver an intervention.
