Governance & Institutional Development

Governance is a legal, economic, political, and institutional framework, through which the authority in a country is exercised. Governance encompasses laws, regulations, mechanisms, and procedures that are followed by various stakeholders for expressing their interests, exercising their rights, fulfilling their obligations, and are aimed at mediating the conflict of interests and providing the acceptable solutions. The concept of ‘good governance’ can be characterized by participation, effectiveness, transparency, equitability, and accountability.

TSCPL strives to promote the ‘good governance’ and institutional strengthening through the following pillars:

Training, Capacity Building & Change Management 

Capacity-building underpins many of the projects we execute in the development sector. Institutional reform increasingly involves the re-organization of activities, executing change management. Our expertise lies in the following key areas:

·   Capacity Assessments and Training Needs assessments.

·   Stakeholder Consultations.

·   Strategy Development and Organisational Planning.

·   Developing Human Resource Plans and Training Plans.

·   Delivering Training and Re-training.

·   Decentralisation of Business Processes and Service Delivery.

Over the years TSCPL has also conducted numerous training workshops on Public Financial Management, Monitoring and Evaluation, and e-Governance for over three thousand senior and middle-level executives, professionals, and academicians for organisation across the world.

 Research and Knowledge Management 

We have carried out scoping assessments, research studies, and best practice documentation in a diverse range of sectors. We have expertise in carrying out field research and action research integrating participatory methods. Our approach to carrying out research and studies is based on;

·   Identifying Assessment Parameters

·   Developing Research Framework

·  Identifying Appropriate Methodology for Data Collection and Research

·   Ensuring Appropriate Sampling and Representation

·   Carrying Out In-depth Analysis

·   Presenting Findings and Outcomes

Given the importance of lesson learning, identifying best practices for scaling up and replication of successful development interventions, TSCPL places an important emphasis on knowledge management including documentation, learning, and sharing experiences as well as through developing knowledge portals and learning systems.

 Project Management

We have provided project management support including the setup and operationalization of Project Management Units (PMUs) for a diverse set of projects. Our main approach is to promote and ensure locally-driven project implementation to achieve ownership and sustainability for clients. In order to meet these objectives, TSCPL has provided support in the following ways:

·   Establishing Project Management Support Units

·   Developing Work Processes and Organigrams

·   Providing Training and Capacity Building

·   Strengthening Project Monitoring and Reporting in a Systematic Manner

·   Detecting Challenges, Risk Factors and Mitigating Risks

·   Promoting Lesson Learning and Knowledge Transfer
