Institutions and Productive Development Programs in Latin America and the Caribbean: Methodological Approach and Preliminary Results

Sep 2011
This document aims to contribute to the development of a tool to analyze Productive Development Programs (PDPs). The methodology for mapping and measuring of institutional performance (MIDI, from its acronym in Spanish) constitutes an effort to quantify and measure the organizational aspects that contribute to a better balance between the costs and benefits of PDPs. The objective of the MIDI is to measure the quality of the programs and the institutions that are behind them and assess their ability to achieve their stated goals. It is in this vein that the MIDI establishes metrics to analyze how these organizational arrangements are planned, implemented, and monitored.
