Managing projects in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment

Day 4 of the Innov4Change e-conference for African Civil Society.

In the development aid sector, project management is carried out within an extremely rigid framework. Projects are planned months or even years in advance. The associations have a duty to carry out the planned actions, within the allotted time, with the allocated budget and to achieve the expected numerical objectives.

Yet everyone recognizes that you live in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous World (VUCA). Projects start when we can’t have all the information and, in any case, situations can change very quickly due to exogenous factors.

The Covid 19 crisis we are experiencing is an excellent example of this.

How can we design projects closer to the needs of the field, learn from our mistakes and become agile to adapt to changing realities? Can approaches from the private sector, such as the Agile method, be adapted to the development sector?

This conference is aimed at African civil society actors and all actors involved with it: international organisations, technical and/or financial partners, experts (trainers, evaluators, facilitators, researchers, etc).

Includes a session on Outcome Mapping.
