Case Study

This case study published in News Reach, the livelihoods and development bi-monthly of voluntary organisation PRADAN demonstrates how the organisation development of Gram Panchayats strengthens and improves local governance and ensures effective service delivery to citizens at the last mile, through work undertaken in Karnataka and Maharashtra. Organisation Development principles include appropriate organization design, incentive structures, and behaviour norms among others. The publication acknowledges change as a continuous process and underlines the need for such frameworks to evolve as per the local needs and requirements of the panchayat over time. The case study also narrates the transformational journey of some elected representatives to demonstrate how organisation development initiatives nurture the potential of individual members in the change process.
