Your points touch the Heart of IMPLEMENTING this PSM Vision. Our view is that the Big Issue is not that the World Bank Group, WBG, create the time and the patience to really develop Industry Standard Diagnostic Path to PSM Approach necessary to Professionally tackle real and complex Village to Global problems on the ground within work towards achieving PSM Vision; it is two fold – that WBG Muster the Political Will necessary for achieving PSM Vision ambition on successful and sustainable basis and that WBG Professionally tackle Muddled Thinking Challenge within International Development Cooperation Challenge. The points laying emphasis on Diagnostic Approach that is an Integral part of Joined Up Approach / Strategic Thinking Approach made by Lanre, William, Jana, Benjamin, Talib, Willy and Anonymous underline the Fact that this is the Big Issue. To effectively address this Big Issue, the Big Questions are:- 1. Does WBG recognize that a) Achieving WBG Vision Ambition – Our Dream is a World without Poverty, greatly depends on achieving PSM Vision, ICR Vision, CLEAR Vision, MfDR Vision, Visions of other WBG Initiatives Ambitions? b) Operationalizing (1a) in Practice greatly depends on shifting focus away from complex problems and passing blame and shifting focus towards practical solutions and creating opportunities? c) Operationalizing (1b) in Practice demand WBG authorities correctly identify Professionals with adequate Hard Competencies – Learning and Skills and Soft Competencies – Character, Courage and Mindset; Empower, Promote and Protect these Professionals on WBG, other G20 Institutions, G20 Countries, Non G20 Countries, Non G20 Institutions, CSOs’ – National and International sides through provision of adequate support – influence resources, technical resources and funding resources. d) Operationalizing (1c) in Practice greatly depends on accepting Overarching Lessons Learnt in past 51 years of International Development Cooperation is that No Lessons have been Learnt and taking Practical Action Steps to ensure that Moving Forward Lessons are Actually Learnt from Lessons Learnt. e) All good ideas and pertinent suggestions generated in continuing PSM Vision Discussions need to be harvested and implemented on time? 2. Will WBG deliver on its Duties and responsibilities as basis for Enjoying its Rights in the work towards overcoming PSM Initiative and PSM Training as Single Project Challenge? 3. Can WBG deliver on its Duties and responsibilities in the work towards Overcoming PSM Initiative and PSM training as Single Project Challenge without taking prompt ACTION on all good points made by contributors to this ongoing PSM Discussion? In finding practical answers to these Big Questions, WBG need to recognize that:- 1. The WBG cannot on its own tackle all real and complex village to global PSM Initiative and PSM Training as Single Project Linked Political Process, Human Factor, Technical Process, Capacity Building, Financial Factor, Consensus Building and Consultation Process problems on the ground, hence the need at this early stage for Inclusive Consultation and Negotiation Process that is an Integral Part of a Comprehensive Testing Framework for PSM Initiative and PSM Training as Single Project. 2. The Task to overcome PSM Initiative and PSM Training as Single Project Challenge in (1) is a Task that must be done, if sustainable solutions are to be found to World Food, Fuel, Finance and Terrorism Problems and Global Recession problems on the ground. 3. PSM Vision Complex problems are soluble. It is Not Impossible to find; implement; monitor, evaluate and assess practical solutions to PSM Initiative and PSM Training as Single Project problems on the ground – many of these problems have been identified in ongoing discussions; should WBG be prepared and determined to face New Direction, adopt New Priorities and Support New Partnerships – in the work towards achieving PSM Vision, ICR Vision, CLEAR Vision, MfDR Vision, Visions of other WBG Initiatives Ambitions within One WBG Initiative Ambition effectively linked to work towards achieving Global Visions Ambitions – MDGs’; PD; AAA; One UN Initiative’ G20 Global Solutions to Global Problems and Developed / Developing Countries Governments National Visions Ambitions. 4. Current National and International developments present Bright Prospects of Success in the work towards achieving PSM Vision Ambition. The successful and sustainable implementation of PSM Vision would Mark Turning Point in International Development Cooperation and Deliver Sustainable Benefits to Citizens on both Developed and Developing Countries sides, particularly the Billions of World Poor. Poverty, including Child Poverty, is increasing in Developed Countries including the US and UK and so Fighting Poverty is no Longer Matter of Charity and Morality but also Matter of Economic Well Being and National Security for Developed Countries. 5. Global Collective Action for WBG and Partners Best to be Good Enough is necessary condition for achieving PSM Vision on successful and sustainable basis. Should WBG accept to serve as Central Actor and jointly with other Central Actors – Powerful International Institutions, particularly the EC; Powerful Developed Countries Governments, particularly US, UK, France and Germany and Powerful Developing Countries Governments particularly Nigeria, South Africa, Brazil and China Drive Change in the International Development Cooperation System; this Global Collective Action could be Built in Record time and Maintained to Deliver Sustainable Benefits to Citizens on both Developed and Developing Countries sides within implementation of the Global and National Visions Initiatives.
