In particular, the two organisations' attempts to take a more comprehensive approach to PFM were to be highlighted. The study is a desk study, based on a review of policy documents. An overview of the Swedish and Norwegian approach for support to PFM reveals a number of similarities between the two donors.
In particular, since the seventies and eighties, their approach has moved away from the concept of "filling holes" based on stand-alone technical assistance to PFM institutions.

The western emphasis on individualism creates an obsession with personal learning styles a notion largely discredited by recent research ; and the desire to demonstrate impact and value leads to a focus on objectives which counters the natural dynamic of human learning. Collective learning has more in common with the discipline of theatre; the best learning I have witnessed in the last 20 years has sprung from a creative, arts-based approach which resists the mania for analysis, and taps into the natural dynamic of learning that humans possess — at least until formal education taught us how not to learn….

This resulted in recommendations concerning support to capacity development. The research provides fresh perspectives on the topic of capacity and its development.
It does so by highlighting endogenous perspectives: how capacity develops from within, rather than focusing on what outsiders do to induce it.

Key learnings from our work are summarised in the two papers presented below. To see all our work in this area, please visit our web page on technical assistance. Joint evaluation study of provision of technical assistance personnel: What can we learn from promising experiences?
