Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannRecently, Washington DC’s Center for Global Development, one of the world’s premier think tanks focused on development, hosted a panel discussionwith the World Bank’s outgoing Chief Economist, Justin Lin. The topic, "Time to Revisit Industrial Policy,” was addressed by a stellar panel in a hugely interesting discussion of the main causes of successful development.

What I found most interesting was that Lin and all the panelists, even though they differed radically on many points, all agreed that capacity, including management capacity, was one of the three "legs” on which successful development rested, whatever the reliance on planning and market happens to be. Sadly, development assistance organizations such as USAID and the World Bank have all but abandoned capacity-building either because they don’t believe it can be done well, or because growing local educational institutions doesn’t lend itself to quick easily measurable outcomes.

By Nora Brown, GBSN COO
This month I had the pleasure of accompanying a team of five MBA students from UCLA's Anderson School of Business to South Africa and Ghana. The challenge was simple: find interesting health organizations, learn about the challenges they've faced, and write case studies for health management training programs. Can't be too hard, right?
