Adaptive management services

Lead delivery of complex transformation through the development of adaptive management capabilities

While some change can be anticipated and planned for – such as the transition from fossil fuel dependence to renewable energy – change rarely goes entirely to plan and an adaptive approach is required.

Overview

While some change can be anticipated and planned for – such as the transition from fossil fuel dependence to renewable energy – change rarely goes entirely to plan. Adaptive management is a discipline that has demonstrated its value and been refined in practice in the large-scale complex program environment of international development.

While it is critical to lead and manage with the flexibility to change, adaptive management is not simply being flexible to change. Adaptive management is a structured and iterative process of leadership and decision-making when programs and environments are challenged by high levels of uncertainty. Adaptive management encompasses elements of setting clear objectives, establishing a theory of change or process model, building a plan and rigorously monitoring and evaluating evidence as the program is delivered.

Adaptive management incorporates a system for leading and managing complex programs while learning about which leadership and management actions have the greatest effect, and which need revision. Our team draws on industry-leading adaptive management experience to support governments, businesses and communities through complex transformation programs.
