It seems, sometimes, that mobilizers and facilitators just do not occupy the same universe as report writers. Perhaps it is because mobilizing and facilitating is a very verbal occupation, and one where the action and the results are the main focus. Reflecting, remembering and recording seem to be put at a lower priority than the current action.At least once or twice a year, if you invest in one-day workshops about report writing, you will obtain returns on you investment with value far greater than the costs. If you use participatory training methods, and draw the answers out of the participants, you can energize, and re-energize those from whom you want to receive reports.Similarly, if you are a community mobilizer, and depend upon reports from representatives of your client communities, you need to find ways to encourage them to write useful reports. Further, if you are anyone who needs reports in order to complete your own work, you need to find ways to encourage and to guide good report writing.The documents in this module guide you in leading your participants to answering these questions. Although two of the documents differ between report writing for mobilizers and report writing for coordinators, the principles remain the same. By organizing workshops and training sessions for those from whom you wish to receive reports, you will stimulate them and guide them in writing reports that will be read, that will have some effects, that will be easy to read, and that will be on time.If, in contrast, you neglect to inform them of the importance of report writing, they will repay you with equal neglect in writing them. Treat your field staff (community leaders, volunteers) with a one-day report-writing workshop; you will be happy if you do.When you are asked to write a report you will usually be given a report brief which provides you with instructions and guidelines. The report brief may outline the purpose, audience and problem or issue that your report must address, together with any specific requirements for format or structure. This guide offers a general introduction to report writing; be sure also to take account of specific instructions provided by your department.
