Knowledge sharing in agricultural research - let strategy follow actions
You must have Flash installed to view this content.
Simone Staiger-Rivas of the CGIAR advises research organizations thinking about knowledge sharing "not to start with a strategy." She suggests instead to start small with different projects and experiments. She concludes that we need to adopt the basic methods of research - to learn, to think about, to experiment, have trials, then scale up - "that's exactly what we should do in knowledge sharing."

Three entry points to enhance knowledge sharing in agricultural research
You must have Flash installed to view this content.
Simone Staiger-Rivas of the CGIAR argues that introducing knowledge sharing into a research organization requires attention to three entry points: The first is 'strategic' - making decision points more horizontal and participatory. The second is to work on concrete tools and approaches that staff can work with. The third concerns capacity building and staff empowerment. There is certainly no single 'magic bullet'. For knowledge sharing to really happen, an organization needs to "change profoundly." Interview by Peter Ballantyne, May 2009
