Organizational development

As it is a well-known fact that sustainable institutions are crucial to sustainable development processes, practically every project of ECO's has an organizational development component. While some projects apply a learning by doing approach, others ask for specific lessons learnt support, one-to-one support for specialists and executive staff, or team development processes. In rural development, organizational development is very often an end in itself. An importnat part of our work is to support governmental and non-governmental stakeholders in decentralization and democratization processes.

ECO has been co-operator to the pilot phase of "Capacity Works", the now well established management model of GIZ's. With a previous background in each single tool applied by the model, ECO is now also capable to plan and work along the comprehensive strategic approach.
