11junAll Day15Training Course: Adaptive ManagementWorking Effectively in the Complexity of International Development

Event Details

In the last few years, “Adaptive Management” (AM) and “complexity-aware monitoring and evaluation and learning” have gone viral as new development catchwords. Networks of donors, practitioners and researchers, such as ‘Doing Development Differently’, ‘Thinking and Working Politically’ and ‘Adaptive Management’ have developed thinking, explored current practice and are starting to propose new approaches that recognize that to be effective, international development programmes need to address the complexity and unpredictability of the contexts in which we work. This 5- day course offers a blend of grounded theory, case studies and student clinics, which will help us to understand the importance of complexity, the need for Adaptive Management (AM), and its applications for international development programming.

Day 1> Introduction and definition of Adaptive Management
Day 2> Design and planning: exploring systems, power and stakeholder mapping
Day 3> Implementing: managing collaborative and iterative programs and activities
Day 4> Integrating complexity-aware monitoring, evaluation and learning
Day 5> Institutionalizing Adaptive Management – Making the case for AM to leaders and peers
