As a TA provider you increase the likelihood that all of your beneficiaries receive equal treatment and high quality TA by establishing a systematic approach to your technical assistance engagements. This systematic process involves four phases: the request phase, analysis, implementation, and evaluation. Although the process is not always linear, it allows you as the provider to define the development needs and appropriately execute your services.
Not all beneficiaries will be responsive to your services. Change can be an unusual situation and may be met with resistance. Therefore how well a TA provider can assess and manage a beneficiary organization’s willingness to change contributes to the success of a technical assistance engagement.
