This Technical Note illustrates how a government results-based program using LforR resources took shape in Sierra Leone in the context of a civil service reform project, modeling a process that could be used in other projects. A Problem-Driven Iterative Adaptation (PDIA) change framework steered the LforR process of adaptive implementation to improve the process of project implementation and support the state’s capacity for delivering public services. The model of client-led project design and implementation throughout this project provides a practical example of how key principles of the PDIA framework can be operationalized in development projects. This Note describes this process in Sierra Leone in detail and provides lessons for future use of this innovative approach.
