We ensure transformation is locally owned and sustainable
We have operated at the forefront of international development for a long time and combine the deep understanding and expertise we have gained in our range of technical skills with our extensive country experience. We tailor these to meet the specific challenges and requirements of our clients
Our commitment to global development and growth extends beyond the timeframe for the projects we undertake. A core element of our approach is to ensure sustainable capacity building and institutional strengthening. We achieve this by designing the right mix of formal and on-the-job training that includes building future in-house training capabilities as well as the ability to self-monitor progress and adjust training as needed.
We work side-by side with clients to develop the requisite skills and at the same time build the trust, commitment and ownership which are vital to managing a successful change process. We work with institutions to assess their existing capabilities and plan improvements that fit with their wider development programmes and the level of change they can effectively manage within their timeframe. This involves prioritising and timetabling the knowledge transfer and capacity building by analysing:
