Colin Mitchell

Colin Mitchell studied accounting, auditing and economics and completed accounting articles in 1979. I spent fifteen years in the manufacturing and financial services sectors.

This work primarily focused on designing and implementing enterprise resource planning, management accounting systems and financial instruments before moving into the more strategic side of private sector development.

In 1994 I entered the economic development field, primarily focused on strategy, enterprise development, value chain and cluster development, monitoring & evaluation and organisation transformation.

In 2004 I developed the Genesis Programme, a process and methodology for strategy formulation and catalytic project identification. This process has since been published in collaboration with GTZ under creative commons licence.

I have over eighteen years regional and international experience in training, economic and enterprise development, strategy design and monitoring & evaluation.
