I have extensive work and research experience in sub-Saharan Africa, having lived there for 13 years and focused on it as both an external and internal consultant to NGOs and public sector agencies for 10 more years. I specialize in organizations, organizational development, organizational behavior and culture, institutional and organizational fields, and organizational evolution and learning processes. All my work and thinking centralizes the power dynamics, inequalities, and identity politics that surround and constitute development projects, programs, and strategies. I have proven managerial and leadership competencies, and this understanding of how theory, big ideas, “best practice” and innovation actually get refracted through pragmatic choices of the working professional is perhaps the highest value I bring to my work with students. Related to this is experience in program and organizational monitoring, evaluation, and learning systems, performance management, strategic planning, and social, cultural, and political economic analysis. Finally, I have a strong background, both practically and academically, in civil society, social movements, and policy advocacy.
