International assistance programmes for developing countries are in urgent need of revision. Continuous testing and verification is required if development activity is to cope effectively with the uncertainty and complexity of the development process. This examines the alternatives and offers an approach which focuses on strategic planning, administrative procedures that facilitate innovation, responsiveness and experimentation, and on decision-making processes that join learning with action. A useful text for academics and practitioners in development studies, geography and sociology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Now updated to consider the experience of the 1980s and early 1990s, this book offers fresh insight into project design and implementation. ... This book offers an informed critique ... and presents a persuasive argument for reform. Rondinelli's call for greater experimentation, innovation, responsiveness and local participation in project design and implementation should be given careful consideration by both scholars and practitioners of development administration.' - Development Policy Review

From reviews of the 1st edition: `... the best integration and summation of current "wisdom" on the subject ... represents a Magna Carta for practitioners.' - Economic Geography

`A succinct, thought-provoking book which should be of interest to all students of regional science, especially those concerned with economic development policies in the Third World.' - Annals of Regional Science
