Innovation, Execution, Partnership
The Center for Implementation Efficiency (C4ie) is a knowledge sharing digital platform - sharing lessons learned, best practices, practical ideas, etc. to facilitate learning and collaboration to improve program implementation by non-profit organizations. Efficient implementation includes technical and execution efficiency. It means a strong health system, able to deliver integrated services. It means an education system that is efficient and owned by communities. It means efficient use of resources, thus freeing up resources for other development initiatives. Inefficiencies also occur due to slow absorption of allocated resources.
The Center is also a technical assistance provider in seven areas and has various experts who have several decades of global experiences.
Efficiencies can be achieved at any stage of project cycle management - design, start-up, implementation, and evaluation. Thomas Watson of IBM said "Good design is good business". We know good design is the initial step toward good implementation.
