Constituent Voice

The recipe for our secret sauce
Working in ways that foster mutual
accountability

Organizations can ask the people they intend to benefit what they think about plans, performance, and reports. When organizations respond effectively to what they hear, we call this Constituent Voice.

Constituent Voice is a tool to manage performance rather than a form of evaluation. Still, feedback data is an early indicator of change taking place and can be triangulated with other evidence of performance and results (including objective measures and impact evaluations) to enrich your understanding of what is happening now.

It is often predictive of future outcomes. In developing the Constituent Voice method, Keystone has drawn from tested customer satisfaction techniques, and has adapted them to the context of development where people’s choice is often limited by the monopolistic position of aid agencies and government service providers.

  • Radical simplicity

    Ask your constituents 2 to 5 questions frequently. This is first a form of engagement. Though the data is reliable.

  • Net performance

    Separate responses as positive, okay, and negative.

  • Peer Benchmarking

    Analyse and compare your feedback with that of similar organisations.

  • Adaptive Management

    Act on feedback and dialogue with constituents. When you improve, so do your feedback scores.
