Learning Brief - Recruiting an MSD team leader for a PPDP project

UNIDO is piloting a new type of Public Private Development Partnership (PPDP) that applies the Market Systems Development (MSD) approach. The assumption is that this will maximise scalability and sustainability of results of the PPDP model.

MSD projects require a particular type of project leadership. This learning brief looks at the experience of recruiting an MSD Team Leader for the Chief Technical Advisor (CTA) position. How did we adapt the CTA job description to reflect MSD competencies? How did UNIDO assess MSD competencies during the recruitment process? What worked, what did not work and why during recruitment?
