The Rural & Agricultural Finance Learning Lab launches a new platform for organizational learning

In 2019, the Mastercard Foundation Rural & Agricultural Finance Learning Lab and Dalberg Design developed the Dynamic Learning Playbook to help organizations better understand their learning challenges and how to solve them. Now, the PDF Playbook has been brought to life in an interactive microsite:

What is intentional learning and why does it matter?

Learning is the process of acquiring knowledge or skills. Intentional learning means having goals to direct that process, and systems to help turn learning into action in a way that is consistent with organizational objectives.

An adaptive and dynamic approach to implementation is fundamental for any organization operating in a complex ecosystem. Better internal learning enables organizations to consolidate and share lessons with other actors in their ecosystem, creating opportunities to improve implementation and impact more broadly.

Much of the original content of the Dynamic Learning Playbook was developed in close collaboration with program partners in the Mastercard Foundation Rural & Agricultural Finance portfolio, who recognize the value of learning as a means to achieve program objectives and drive a culture of continuous improvement within their work.

Explore the Playbook and share your resources

This new microsite invites individuals and organizations to engage with the resources from the Playbook in a format that is easy to absorb and even easier to share with colleagues and partners. By elevating the Playbook from a PDF to a dynamic and collaborative platform, the goal is to activate a community of practice around intentional learning that will empower organizations to achieve greater social impact on the ground. Users can also submit their own resources to be added to the site, creating an ever-growing knowledge hub for organizational learning.
