How IDB measures the success of partnerships

    Is it difficult for a multilateral investment bank with rigid standards and procedures to apply private sector lessons to its work?

    Devex asked Bernardo Guillamon, manager of the Inter-American Development Bank’s office of outreach and partnerships, at the IDB’s 2013 gathering in Panama City.

    In our video interview, Guillamon discusses how the bank tries to ensure that its private sector collaborations achieve measurable results. Partnerships, Guillamon told Devex, are all about innovation.

    “You do different things, you talk to different people, and you open your mind,” Guillamon said.
