about

Do you know where your investments go? How effective and accountable are the resources used in the international development? How can intercultural frictions, governance scandals, or corruption be prevented?

Based on a case study the author unveils a gap in the governance of development projects, a gap between implementation and governance, ultimately hindering effective, transparent and accountable usage of resources.

Illustrated with entertaining examples the author, himself a senior manager in development and business, develops a Project Governance model. Overcoming shortcomings of the theories of corporate governance and business ethics, of best practices in development and project management, the Project Governance Model is a concrete model for practitioners and academics. Its six modules build an integrated, strategically oriented and ethically reflected platform for a more truthful and efficient cooperation in difficult projects or programs such as in development.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This exploratory study pursues the objective of building a project governance model, as a useful golden mean to overcome the governance gap . . the conceptual framework seems to have been adequately balanced in relation to the objective of harmoniously combining theory and practice. . Renz's project governance model offers us, above all, the opportunity to consider a governance gap and, generally speaking, the opportunity to think about how to enhance and interiorize ethics and accountability in development sectors." (Pasquale Arena, Journal of Management & Governance, Vol. 13, 2009)
