Development is a complex task. Creating systemic change, working with local partners, and facilitating behaviour change are particularly complex activities. This means there is limited predictability as to the results of an intervention, experimentation is a must, and strategies must evolve over time in response to the local environment.As such, development actors are increasingly agreeing that managing programmes adaptively can improve their effectiveness. A growing body of evidence supports this claim. But what does adaptive management look like in practice? And what does it require of managers and funders to make happen? The BEAM Exchange is hosting a free one hour webinar on effective adaptive management at 1pm GMT on 10 December 2014. It will introduce some of the latest thinking in the area. Following a recent report on Navigating Complexity, Amir Allana from Engineers Without Borders Canada and Timothy Sparkman from Mercy Corps will discuss lessons learnt by the Mercy Corps Northern Karamoja Growth, Health and Governance Programme on the importance of office culture and consistent management messaging, and the role of supportive tools and processes. There will be an extended opportunity for participants to ask questions, contribute their own experience and suggest how BEAM and other organisations take the adaptive management agenda forward.
