Development Management

The World Bank envisions, ‘a world free of poverty’. USAID seeks ‘a better future for all’. DfID aims to ‘eliminate poverty in poorer countries’, ADB to ‘improve welfare’, and GTZ to ‘improve living conditions’, and so on. The Millennium Development Goals, a set of 8 bold promises to poor people around the world, seek to eradicate extreme poverty by 2015. But they also beg a critical question: How do we know we are making progress? This is also the same question that managers in both the public and private sectors ask themselves.

The challenges are daunting. Whether in the public or private sector, development organizations or multi-national corporations, all management professionals face the challenge of results: of assessing whether our activities have impact, drawing lessons to improve our results, and ultimately delivering on our development promise. AIT Extension Development Management courses seek to help our clients meet this challenge.

Development management and effectiveness is the ‘how’ of development. It addresses the knowledge, skills, and processes that underpin effective management. Today, management professionals no longer have the luxury of simply mobilizing resources to do good works. We have to demonstrate our impact. We have to progress toward our goals effectively and efficiently. 

For most of us, this does not come easily. 

The reality is, many management efforts are less effective than they should, or could, be. Our return on investment could be higher. So what do the most effective organizations do differently?

The best have developed a performance culture. AIT Extension Development Management courses, therefore, seek to assist our clients in this process and provide the insight, capabilities, practices, and tools of effective development performance management. We help you build the results-driven vision, goals and value proposition in the different areas of your organization whether it is in finance, human resources, marketing or governance.

We help you recognize and address the specific barriers to effectiveness in your organization. And we help you develop the strong, committed leadership and staff, rigorous analytical problem solving, effective stakeholder engagement, and results-driven process and program design and management to overcome barriers and dramatically increase your impact.
