The Building State Capability (BSC) program at the Center for International Development (CID) at Harvard University researches new strategies and tactics to build the capability of public organizations to execute and implement. We are exploring the potential of a Problem Driven Iterative Adaptation (PDIA) approach which rests on 4 core principles: local solutions for local Problems; pushing problem Driven positive deviance; try, learn, Iterate, Adapt; and scale through diffusion. This video series highlights the key elements of our approach.
