22. Coordination techniques


The next three overheads all deal with various coordination techniques. These activities are illustrative of the various skills and methods needed for supportive coordination of international organizations. One alternative for the elaboration of these skills would be to have small groups prepare lists of these activities before showing the overheads. The various participant-generated lists can be combined to form a master list, either on flipchart paper or on a clean transparency. If all of the points have been covered do not show the overheads. If time is short you may simply want to go through the points using the bulleted lists on the overheads.
