Unpacking Institutional Change : Implications for P2P Learning
What actually drives institutional change?
We often fail to notice how institutional change that is visible from the outside is driven by incentives that act on deeply entrenched organisational beliefs, rules, norms, values & practices which are the root of institutional inertia.
Various organisational cultures will require different change models, but three ingredients are essential for success: Acceptance, Authority and Capacity.
During the 5th Annual Meeting of the EIP, Dr. Derick Brinkerhoff* discussed the intricacies of institutional change and their implications on P2P learning. Access his presentation here and his paper on Public Sector Management Reform in Developing Countries here.
