<div><p>Development management engages with the multiple challenges of development. This module sets out to help you build your capacities for managing those challenges. It rests on the assumption that management is a political and ethical process, a matter of the use of power to bring about desired goals in contexts characterised by conflicts of interests, values and agendas. The module teaches a range of skills you need to manage development well, skills of strategic thinking, research, advocacy, planning, policy making and evaluation. You will find it relevant whatever sector you are in, and whether your work is local or global.</p></div>
