The recently designated state manager of MIA Philippines, a non-profit organization with a mandate to relieve poverty in developing countries, is faced with the challenge of designing and managing a development aid project that would create a goto-market supply chain for a distant Filipino fishing hamlet. The state manager has to enter a fresh state, find the job, deal with the constraints of a culture that is foreign, handle the expectations of important stakeholders whilst attempting to handle a multicultural team and end the job punctually. The worth of the case lies in the realistic evaluation of stakeholders’ motivation, their capacities and assets, and job constraints during the design and execution phases. Value added analysis, value chain analysis and stakeholder evaluation are used to evaluate the applicability of long-term accomplishment, impact and job design.
