IPK Resources to Share
Over the years we have developed resources which ease our work as process designers and facilitators.
"The concepts, methods and tools in IPK’s training cycles are very relevant for the practical work in our organisation."

Sonja Kurz, SADC Promotion of Economic Integration and Trade Programme, German Agency for Development Collaboration

We understand ourselves as part of a larger community of change agents and facilitators. As such, we benefit enormously from the knowledge and practice many others have shared. In return, we want to share our own knowledge and materials with the wider community. This is a starting point for you to explore. Please return from time to time, as we intend this to be a continuously growing resources page.

Our Approach to Sharing Resources

At IPK we have a long-standing practice of sharing resources. Please see below for a variety of resources, ranging from content relevant to the virtual space, to content relevant to facilitation and process design, further content on tools and methodologies, and much more. Please feel free to send us feedback on what is both useful and of interest to you and your teams.
