Agile Methodology for Human Development

The way development projects are designed is very much donor driven. Development NGOs build projects according to what the RFA is asking them and they end up sometimes finding out that the situation on the ground is very different, that they do not have the resources they thought, or that the technical solution they are implementing does not work in that context.

Death is the default

We know when a project fails. But it's harder to know when a project is successful. Sure, there's the M&E stuff - but does anyone take notice of that? There's plenty of occasions when donors have pulled the plug on projects that look wonderful according to the statistics and testimonials by those who supposed to be benefiting. But perhaps its useful to look beyond the funder, and explore why projects fail.
