Aychew Adane S.



Master of Business Leadership (MBL) from UNISA SBL, South Africa. Master of Science in GIS from ITC, The Netherlands. B.A. degree in Geography from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia. Well experienced in public sector, development consulting, strategic planning, organizational management and development, business development, marketing, project management, development cooperation, knowledge management, M&E, GIS, and database development. The experience varies from government, non-governmental, and international consulting company under different sectors. I have been working with different public and private stakeholders. Achievements I help NIRAS business development in Ethiopia by providing business management and marketing strategies, and by establishing and developing the country office. I proposed idea on the need of establishing GIS and Regional Information Service in Benishangul Gumuz region. According to my idea, this service established; and has been giving important service for development partners. I introduced a new approach during the making of Benishangul Gumuz regional 5 years strategic plan (2005—2010). The approach was accepted and appreciated widely by development stakeholders. While I was department head in Benishangul Gumuz Regional State President Office, I proposed new organizational setup. My idea was accepted and implemented. As a regional facilitator/coordinator of WaterAid RiPPLE program in Benishangul Gumuz region, I facilitated and coordinated the program in the region. I played significant role for the establishment of Learning Practice Alliance (LPA) of the program. I participate on socioeconomic studies undertaken at community level that help planning and decision making. As UNISA SBL MBL student I wrote thesis entitled ‘Development Aid Technical Assistance Knowledge Utilization in the Ethiopian Public Organizations’. The thesis results give important policy recommendations.
