When asked which medal they would like to win after a competition, most people would probably choose gold. Fair enough, but at times, for instance at the beginning of an athlete’s career, it might be better to receive a silver medal because it recognizes achievement while pointing to growth and improvement ahead.
That’s how we at FinDev Canada are looking at an independent analysis just completed that examined our Development Impact Framework. It looked at how closely our policies and practices under the Framework align with the global Operating Principles for Impact Management.
