Practical Strategies

1. TAct - Ten Action Principles

Our Ten Action Principles (TAct) is a practical strategy that enables a transition from Aid dependency to an equal partnership between independent development institutions. The tool provides efficient and effective cross-cultural collaboration built on trust, transparency and accountability, where inputs, operational responsibilities and benefits are shared equally. The Ten Actions are: needs-driven programme, equal partnership, real-time outcome planning and evaluation,  strategic partnership, institutional capacity, sustainable economy, trust, transparency and accountability, resilience, knowledge sharing and visibility.

You are welcome to download the manual, book a workshop or book a seminar.

2. ROPE - Planning & Evaluation

The Real-time Outcome Planning & Evaluation (ROPE) is a programme management tool that enables local developers to implement their solutions. We compile and address the necessary conditions required to bring about a given impact, including trust, transparency, accountability, cross-cultural understanding, sustainable economy and institutional capacity.
ROPE addresses: development, research management, laboratory management and innovation.


You are welcome to download the ROPE manual, book a workshop, book a seminar, or contact us to discuss a coaching assignment. 


We enable transparency and accountability in ethics and governance, benefiting from our tool TRUST. Scientific research shows that corruption and crime are prone in areas where people struggle to survive, and with the HR&S tool TRUST, these challenges are handled professionally and without judgement. Trust is more important than ever and concerns all relationships. It is right at the foundation of the success of any business and partnership, and a relationship without trust is not really a relationship at all. Relationships built on trust are also an important competitive advantage because trust is so valuable and so rare. 15% of investment capital is invested in accountability measures – 5% (minimum EUR 300) each in auditing, survey managing and coaching, in this priority order.

4. CROSS - Cross-Cultural Understanding

The HR&S Cross-cultural understanding tool (CROSS) offers awareness, dialogue, empowerment and respect. Each culture has its own values. It is not always easy to understand another culture’s ways of doing things, why successful cross-cultural partnerships require awareness and professional management of cultural differences. The tool captures good values from different cultures and ensures these are strengthened within the collaboration. HR&S states that it is the difference between contexts that creates different cultural habits, rather than differences between people. We also increase cross-cultural awareness through our shop with items produced by our partners in Africa, as well as volunteer assignments and visits to our sites in Africa and  Sweden.

You are welcome to download our manual, book a workshop or seminar, visit our shop, or discuss coaching, travelling, and volunteer assignments.

5. RISE Centre

Our Research, Innovation and Social Enterprising International Centres (RISE) facilitate the implementation of innovations and scientific findings, and social enterprises start-ups. The Centres are located at our programme sites in Africa and offer shared co-working space, coaching, training, workshops, seminars, networking, expert advice, and financial start-up loans. We offer membership and services to non-members, at fixed rates.

Please contact us to discuss membership or services.


6. TestE - Evidence based impact

HR&S has developed a strategy for providing scientific evidence of social impact, TestE (Testing the strength of Evidence). TestE captures, for example, randomization, quantitative statistics and contribution tracing. We target outcome, impact, learning lessons, and real-time evaluation planning. Monitoring data is uploaded real-time on, a designated IT platform accessible through computers, tablets and cell phones.

You are welcome to book a seminar, a workshop, or a coaching assignment.
