Book

The Beast of Bureaucracy and Other Tales from Valhalla

Published on 1 January 2007

This little book tells the tale of an unusual organisational learning process in Valhalla, a Nordic development bureaucracy. Known for being a people-friendly development partner, Valhalla was one of the first bilateral donor agencies to promote people’s participation in development. But for those who work there, how to put participation into practice in their everyday work isn’t as obvious as it may seem. For, as they discover, it means tangling with the Beast of Bureaucracy.
