|Now that you have
seen two examples of how Barrier Analysis has been conducted in the
field, you may want to do a simpler analysis as a practice activity
with a group of your friends or colleagues (while you are offline).
You can use Doer/Non-Doer Analysis which examines a limited set of
determinants. This tool was developed by the Change Project at AED.
To use the Doer/Non-Doer Analysis, assemble a group of friends
or colleagues and use the directions in, “AED’s
“Exercise” Exercise (using Doer/Non-Doer Analysis)
(33kb).” It’s best to do
this with a larger group of people, but 20 or more should be adequate
for the purpose of demonstrating the method.
During that exercise, you will be using the Participant
(19kb) , so be sure to have adequate
copies of that questionnaire on hand during the activity.
Once you have had people fill out the Participant Survey (per the
instructions) you can use the document, “Trainer
Instructions for Coding and Presenting “Exercise” Exercise
(31kb)” to guide the coding and
presentation of the data. That document refers to the “Coding
Guide for ‘Exercise’ Exercise”
This exercise is not essential for learning how to do Barrier Analysis,
but it can give you a better idea of how the comparison of Doers
and Non-Doers is done and how the results of a survey of Doers and
Non-Doers can be analyzed.
