training and Capacity Building

We deliver bespoke training, and flexible, adaptable and iterative capacity-building for institutional development and security sector reform.

GIST brings a multi-disciplined, multi-layered approach to both training and capacity building challenges. Personnel with experience spanning from the tactical to the strategic ensure that client requirements are fully understood and translated into bespoke, context-specific solutions.

A mixture of management, operational and analytical staff drawn from across the government, military, aid/development and the commercial sectors, brings extensive experience to bear in order to support the design and delivery of integrated, scalable and agile projects.

We work closely with both donors and recipients to understand their priorities and to ensure provision of cost-effective, measurable change. Our organic approach to understanding rules, patterns, personalities and relationships means we design projects that realistically align client aims and recipient aspirations. Our granular understanding of the environments we work in means our planning and delivery is environmentally and culturally contextualized, and highly adaptable. Activities include:

Institutional & technology assessments

Our team provides detailed organisational functionality and capability assessments, including analysis of current and future technology requirements, whilst highlighting the training and change management implications of adopting these.

Institutional Development

Our experts merge best practice with pragmatism and cultural awareness to design and implement effective and sustainable organisational change.
