GIZ’s management model “Capacity WORKs”

GIZ’s management model “Capacity WORKs” describes Capacity Development as “The development of the ability of people, organizations and societies to manage their own sustainable development processes and adapt to changing circumstances”. It recognizes four levels of capacity development.

  • Competence building focused on individuals. For example, trainings, coaching and knowledge sharing in communities of learning.
  • Organisational development in governments, civil society and the private sector. In other words: change management.
  • The development of cooperation partnerships in society. This includes the development of cooperation systems and networks across organisations.
  • The development of enabling frameworks in society. This includes advice on policies and their implementation.
