Our Approach.

Project Development

LDA has extensive experience in developing and designing programs for impact.  Having worked across multiple regions, sectors and environments, we bring best practice solutions to market failures through robust program design.  Our design engagements can range from a sounding board or facilitation for programs at the design phase to feasibility studies or pilots to ensure that theory can translate to practice for sustainable results.

Management & Supervision

Frontier markets are challenging.  Program underperformance while often influenced by external factors are also often symptoms of management and supervision obstacles due to the complex environments of emerging markets.  LDA can provide management and supervision support through operational, capacity and technology support in the most difficult markets.  Talk to us about how we can help you keep on top of your project's performance from an activity, reporting and a results perspective.

Monitoring & Evaluation

It is said that "what doesn't get measured does count". However, how and what you measure it counts. Beyond determining whether it is an 'outcome' or an 'impact', we believe that the question is, "how do today's actions lead to change tomorrow?". Our approach to M&E is practical. Our experience shows that the best log frames, theory of change frameworks or measurement of results go beyond academia and speak more to how stakeholders feel about an intervention. Our approach to results management goes beyond compliance and focuses on how M&E can be leveraged to improve project performance for sustainable results.

People

When it comes to development, it’s not just about getting ‘the right people on the bus’ or even making sure they are in the ‘right seat’. Let’s face it. It is often difficult to find the right people to get on the bus (assigned seats can be a luxury). Our network reaches across major IFIs, consulting firms, donors and the diaspora to find not just the resources that can do the job but want to do the job. Have a hole resource and expertise gap? LDA can help fill it.ore to how stakeholders feel about an intervention.
