  • Individual feedback (written and verbal, as requested) for participants on their program strategy briefs between the training sessions;  
  • Co-design of a program strategy planning template (narrative and visual) based on existing DGAP templates to be used by research programs in their annual and long-term strategic planning process;  
  • Unlimited access to training materials, including slides, recommended reading material, video recordings of the two training sessions; 
  • Consultation for the implementation of the strategic planning and MEL process in October-December 2020.
