High-quality implementation of foreign aid interventions sometimes requires employee use of contextual information that will be precluded by tight management control. Drawing from over 130 interviews and statistical analysis of a novel database of over 14,000 discrete development projects, Honig finds that top-down controls sometimes undermine development project success.
