Managing for Impact

from theory to practice

My colleague Elias Zerfu (IFPRI) works in the IFPRI offices in Addis and yesterday he showed me some of his exciting work that runs under the title “Managing for Impact” (read their cool blog). He promised to write some more about it, but let me sneak in this picture of a power map that he did with a group in Tanzania. You can see (if you have a very close look) that he used piles of card-board squares to build power towers, he added little cards with symbols for the different actors (to make it easier for illiterate participants) and also symbols for the different activities with which these actors influence what’s happening. Power Mapping is the predecessor of Net-Map and has no social network component. Read up on it here, if you are interested.
