Overview

Development managers, in public and private sectors and non-governmental organisations need to understand the complex institutional landscapes they work in. 

They also need to work with others to use, adapt or create new institutions which can promote development. This in turn means building effective relationships between the many organisations involved. 

The Institutional Development programme is offered by The Open University UK serves to enhance such capabilities. It brings together theory and practice and provides you with opportunities for interactive learning with participants from across the world.
