ASI's project teams
ASI’s project teams blend leading edge technical expertise with strong local knowledge and extensive practical experience in helping to devise and to bring to life practical reforms. Our approach emphasises pragmatism, without sacrifice of principle, and we are committed to getting things done, even in the most difficult circumstances. Improving the performance of economies and institutions, and the quality of people’s lives, requires sustainable reform, and we know that this is impossible without public support and the flexibility on our part to adapt to different cultures, environments and priorities.
ASI’s consultants have a very broad range of technical expertise and teams often combine staff with private sector backgrounds with former public sector specialists. We have a reputation for balancing intellectual rigour with pragmatism, and for dedication to delivering reform objectives reflected in our pro-active management of projects. We have a reputation for responsiveness to fluid work environments, giving rise to our track record of successful project delivery. We believe a rigid approach that conforms unbendingly to a fixed formula will usually fail to deliver.
Our approach is therefore one that it is underpinned by flexibility—while we work to clearly defined workstreams with a view to ensuring continuity, our project teams always work with a high degree of ‘readiness’ to ensure that innovative solutions are found to problems as they arise, and that, with the agreement of the client, work plans are adapted to changing circumstances as appropriate.
