ISDM recognizes the need to “professionalize” the leadership and management of social purpose organizations (PSOs). The institution believes that the development space requires the application of unique and industry-wide appropriate management disciplines. A management that is not content to re-adapt Business Management to development projects, but which arises precisely from the meeting of two crucial areas.
