Discovering development management

Free statement of participation on completion

Discovering development management is a free course that sets out to build up the basic capacities for managing the multiple challenges of development – any development. It rests on the assumption that management is a political and ethical process, a matter of the use of power to bring about desired goals in contexts characterised by conflicts of interests, values and agendas. It is of relevance to managers in every sector, nationally and internationally.
