Great blog, Aleem. You have very well captured the ingredients of the Art and the Science of Delivery. The Knowledge and Solutions Change Team has been hard at work unpacking what it would take for the WBG to operate more along the lines of what you describe. One of the main insights is that we need more flexible instruments, moving away from the current project cycle, to allow us to engage with the client to diagnose problems, experiment, learn, course-correct, implement and deliver multi-sectoral solutions. This will require incentives geared towards rewarding solving problems vs taking projects to the Board, and a different way of engaging with management and the Board. If anyone reading this blog is interested in working with us to flesh out these ideas, please let me know!
