Harvard University PDIA course

“Practice of PDIA: Building Capability by Delivering Results” is a 15-week course for practitioners who are in the weeds of development and actually want to learn how to do PDIA. In this course you will have the opportunity to work on your nominated problem, as a team, using our tools.

The course will include video lectures, required reading, assignments, reflection exercises, peer interaction as well as group work. We estimate that the weekly effort will be between 5-8 hours.

The recently published “Building State Capability: Evidence, Analysis, Action” book will be used as the core text. In June 2017, 30 groups across 15 countries, successfully completed this course. You can read more about their takeaways here.

If you are interested in this course, you will need to identify a:

  • Problem you want to solve. This is a practical course and you will be expected to work on your problem throughout the course, including taking action steps to solve your problem.
  • Team of 4-6 people who will work with you to solve your problem.
