The need to respond faster and increasingly more coordinated in humanitarian crisis has become ever more prevalent in the past decade. The Humanitarian Reform Process (the Transformative Agenda) has reinforced emergency response capacity at the global level and motivated NGOs to join the cause. The Danish Refugee Council has implemented a Corporate Emergency modality, which has been initiated three times since 2014, aiming at a more effective and quicker response. In order to learn from its newly established emergency modality, each of the so called Corporate Emergencies has been accompanied by a Real Time Review in order to learn ‘in real time’ what works and what needs improvement. This Evaluation and Learning Brief compares the findings from the three Real Time Reviews and comments on the usefulness of the review process to the organisation.
