Anecdote Circles were used to help Embedded Advisers (EA) make sense of their work as introducers of change in the Nigerian government client ministries. This was a story-based approach to monitoring primarily for the benefit of the EAs – to listen to and learn about stories from each other, and to conclude with agreed actions, ensuring others outside the Anecdote Circles do not re-interpret the stories after the data has been collected.
Policy Development Facility Phase II used SenseMaker software to capture these insights through their distributed network.
