This paper examines the performance of rural groups in Kenya and addresses the methodological challenges. It also presents two studies on group performance: A) Calliandra group exercise; B) The case study exercise. It highlights that among the 40 groups, 12 (30%) reported having changed their purpose or emphasis of activity. The average age of the groups was 3.6 years, with only 2 formed more than 10 years prior to the survey. Finally, it concludes that new groups and old ones were equally likely to perform well.
