KDIS - GDI: Case Study Training

April 5, 2016 to April 6, 2016
Seoul, South Korea

In collaboration with KDI School of Public Policy and Management (KDIS) staff, the GDI Secretariat will conduct a 2-day training session in delivery case study writing. Delivery case studies are a vital tool for capturing and sharing insights about the "how" of implementation. They trace the steps taken to produce results, and tease out how the strategies and solutions devised have addressed and overcome (or not) unanticipated obstacles (delivery challenges).  

KDIS is an active GDI partner engaged in producing delivery case studies to illustrate how Korea has addressed a number of development challenges through innovative solutions; highlighting the challenges faced and the solutions applied to share these implementation experiences with the rest of the world. Korean case studies will be shared via the World Bank’s Global Delivery Library and contribute to the co-creation of an evidence base of delivery know-how.
