||The international development community invests billions of dollars to improve organisational capacity. But real-life practice
is poorly understood and undervalued as a distinct professional domain. Written by practitioners, this innovative publication
is designed to make capacity development more professional and increasingly effective in achieving development goals. Practical
illustrations draw on experiences from the civic, government and private sectors. A central theme is to understand capacity
as more than something internal to organisations. This book shows how capacity also stems from connections between different
types of actor and the levels in society at which they operate. The content is crafted for a broad audience of practitioners
in capacity development: consultants, managers, front-line workers, trainers, facilitators, leaders, advisors, programme staff,
activists, and funding agencies.
