Pacific Leadership and Governance ‘Precinct’ Tracer Study
Continuing Square Circle’s central involvement with The Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct (The Precinct) in Papua New Guinea (PNG), we were sub-contracted by The University of Queensland to lead a four-phase Tracer Study to evaluate The Precinct’s contribution to ethical values-based leadership in PNG. This Tracer Study will also provide evidence of the extent to which Precinct graduates are using their skills, knowledge and networks to contribute to improved public policy and delivery of services to the benefit of PNG citizens.
The project team–including Tanorama and the PNG National Research Institute—is deploying a range of qualitative and quantitative research methods including surveys, interviews, video case studies, most significant change sense making and participatory ethnography. This range of methods allows the project to illuminate not only how participants have been affected by the programs they have attended, but also what sorts of impacts they in turn have been able to make in their workplaces, their sectors, and on their families and communities.
