Abstract:Organization types involved in PPPs for development range from purely public to private, commercially oriented organizations. These organizations are often answering to drastically different constituencies, leading to a divergence in interests and strategic and operational realities. The different groups of constituencies of involved parties call for diverging courses of action of their focal organizations, leading to a variety of goals being pursued by the different partners through their involvement in PPPs for development. The research at hand contains the results of a case study on the Amsterdam Initiative against Malnutrition (AIM), a large Dutch PPP for development involving government, academia, and various non-governmental organizations and private sector parties, and investigates the process of goal alignment in the initiative. A conceptual framework is proposed untangling the multiplicity of goals for collaborative initiatives. The research moreover provides insight into the various goals pursued by different organization types, and shows the process of getting these different goals aligned for the initiative to be an ongoing and dynamic process. Finally, several factors facilitating this process have been identified.
