Online Course

GDI offers online courses to frontline practitioners from GDI partner organizations. Through a series of virtual engagements, these courses combine structured learning with interactive exercises to familiarize practitioners with GDI’s conceptual framework for understanding delivery challenges, identify existing challenges facing their projects, unpack their root causes, and design actionable solutions.

The Online Course aims to help frontline practitioners from GDI partners to familiarize themselves with the concept of delivery challenges, identify challenges they face and their root causes, and design actionable solutions to these delivery challenges through virtual platforms.

The aim of this course is to:

  • Introduce participants to the concept of delivery challenges and the delivery challenges taxonomy;
  • Guide participants through the identification of a delivery challenge that they encountered recently in their work; and
  • Deconstruct the delivery challenge and its root causes.

The online course is very intensive, which requires the participating practitioners to complete a lot in a short period. This is intentional, as the course is trying to model upfront the importance of acting quickly to create a base for progress and learning. Specific time limits are applied to every activity to establish real pressure and push all team members to first “do something,” then ”stop and reflect,” and then move to the next step.
