Navigating adaptive approaches for development programmes (No. 589; Working Paper, p. 31)Pett, J. - 2020 - ODI
This working paper compares six of the most prominent adaptive approaches to emerge over the past two decades. Three come from the world of innovation, largely in the private sector (agile, lean startup and human-centred design), and three from the global development sector (thinking and working politically, forms of adaptive management and problem-driven iterative adaptation). While all of these approaches are valuable when used in the right context, practitioners may be perplexed by the...

LearnAdapt: a synthesis of our work on adaptive programming with DFID/FCDO (2017–2020) (Briefing Note)Laws, E., Pett, J., Proud, E., & Rocha Menocal, A. - 2021 - ODI
Key takeaways. • Development is not linear or straightforward, but rather complex, uncertain and context-specific. This calls for international development actors to work differently, in ways that are based on deliberate experimentation, learning and adaptation, to inform decisions and drive effective development. • Although it might go by different names, adaptive programming has been used in a variety of areas and fields in both the public and private sectors. Development practitioners...
