Nadim Matta '89
President, Rapid Results Institute; Senior Partner, Schaffer Consulting
Large-scale international economic development efforts have often failed to make tangible improvements in the life of the poor. As president of the Rapid Results Institute, Nadim Matta ’89 spearheads an approach that empowers local stakeholders to set goals and create their own plans, with a focus on fast, team-driven, incremental change that can be sustained for the long term. The Institute is an offshoot of Schaffer Consulting, where Matta is a co-managing partner. He previously worked at the U.S. Agency of International Development and Save the Children.
Matta spoke to Yale Insights in 2013 about how local empowerment power can create lasting change.
