Evaluation of the Results of the Realignment Background Paper: Composition and Dynamics of Project Teams at the IDB: Analysis of staff Fragmentation

Mar 2014
In 2006, the Board of Governors of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB,or the Bank) authorized a major restructuring of the Bank (the "Realignment") to
address the perceived loss of relevance and presence of the institution in Latin
America and the Caribbean (LAC). The Realignment introduced a number of
reforms, including a new organizational structure (the Matrix Structure), a revised
process for project design and execution (the New Project Cycle), and the renewal
of human resource skills and decentralization of personnel. Paper assesses the main changes in the composition and dynamics of IDB project
teams throughout the life of loan operations, with a special emphasis on staff
fragmentation between design and execution.
