There has been an increasing movement to place results at the heart of the agenda for social investments and development. Though development has a compelling value proposition a year of life can often be saved for a few hundred dollars there is skepticism to its ability to measure and manage programs for results. It is this skepticism which is at the heart of debates on the future of development. Managing Development for Results describes the results agenda in development, measurement and management approaches, and challenges on the ground. It is an easily accessible book which provides a comprehensive view on the innovative approach used to demonstrate compelling development results. The first section of the book covers the history and key components of the results agenda. The second section assesses how this is put into practice with innovative examples from global initiatives, foundations, civil society, private sector and country case studies. Finally, the book assesses the future role of the results-based agenda for a wide variety of development actors. It argues that results provide a common currency to coordinate and focus increasingly diverse partners on the core value of development, and communicate this to a wider audience. How results are built into development programs and the future development agenda will be illustrated as well. This book aims to target a wide audience in development, practitioners internationally and locally, management, business and philanthropy and those interested in international relations. It would also aim to appeal to a general audience interested in the future of development and whether it can achieve compelling results.
