Sida Studies in Evaluation
Anders Hanberger , Kjell Gisselberg
Sida's management response system was introduced in 1999 to promote learning and enhance Sida's effectiveness. This study analyses the system's characteristics and basic assumptions, as well as how it works in practice. It also assess the systems relevance and identifies three options for the future.Three main conclusions are drawn. First, that the assumptions of the MRE system are reasonable and consistent to attain the desired outcome of better documentation and structure, but not with the intention of organizational learning. Secondly, it is concluded that the system made a limited contribution to learning as implementation has been slow and uneven. Thirdly, it is said that the system does not enhance partnership, dialogue and ownership.
