Program Management
Implementing complex projects in any environment.

With teams on the ground in over 90 countries, our clients rely on us to bring local knowledge, unparalleled technical expertise, and an impact-focused precision to bear on their most complex projects. We manage large-scale, global social and economic change initiatives, where delivering on-time and on-budget in any context is a given. Every program we take on is delivered flawlessly while safeguarding those we serve.

Making this possible requires the ability to work across sectors and stakeholders, under circumstances in which discretion and compliance are essential. From government agencies to the private sector to civil society groups, we build partnerships, identify integration opportunities, and introduce levels of governance and accountability that meet our clients’ needs and exceed their expectations.

From small pilot projects to sophisticated, multi-year programs that impact societies, economies, and lives, we adapt to any environment and realise results.

    Adaptive Management

    Over the past 50 years, we’ve developed strategies, tools, and decision-making processes to ensure that our programs are agile, flexible, and can quickly adapt to changing realities on the ground.

    We’ve earned our reputation as a pioneer of politically smart and adaptive programming, applying principles such as ‘Thinking and Working Politically,’ ‘Doing Development Differently’ and ‘Problem-Driven Iterative Adaptation’ in practice.

    Palladium has also been at the forefront of applying a political economy approach to delivering results, pioneering applied Political Economy Analysis (PEA) and conducting some of the first drivers of change and political economy studies commissioned by government agencies.

    Our innovative approaches to working in complex social and economic environments have enabled us to achieve outcomes that wouldn’t otherwise be possible, with the ability to adapt them to any context

    Monitoring & Evaluation

    Monitoring and evaluation mechanisms demonstrate accountability, enable innovative and responsive programming and improve our understanding of what constitutes real impact.

    Palladium’s Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning practice provides leadership for evidence-based collaborative learning, using the results of our work to improve decisions affecting program outcomes. We ensure the findings, recommendations and conclusions of our evaluations are accessible to all stakeholders and contribute to collective learning. Our work encompasses a broad spectrum of development sectors, including health, governance, security, agriculture, global climate change and economic growth.
