This tool is on how to categorise, analyse and interpret outcomes already harvested using Tool 5, in a workshop setting. Tool 5 takes you through how to support participants in a workshop to harvest:

  • WIEGO outcomes – that is changes made by informal workers, Nets or MBOs that WIEGO has influenced directly, for example through a training or other intervention 
  • and outcomes that those workers, Nets or MBOs in turn have influenced through their own actions 
  • or outcomes that WIEGO has influenced directly – assuming this is an internal WIEGO workshop rather than a workshop with informal workers.

Tool 6 demonstrates how you collectively categorise, analyse, and interpret the outcomes identified during the workshop 5. This tool comes in this face-to-face version and in an online version (Tool 8).

The workshops described in these two tools aim to strengthen the capacity of participants in telling their stories and in analysing their influence and its strategic implications.
