A Health Diagnostic Tool for Public Development Banks
AbstractThis study introduces a diagnostic tool for determining the health of a public development bank. It defines in normative terms what good health looks like across various dimensions, which allows the PDB to delineate how it can improve its overall performance and achieve its financial and developmental goals. Due to the variety of mandates and business models used by PDBs, there is no one definition of what constitutes perfect health for a PDB; nonetheless there are common parameters and features to their overall systems that can be compared against under a flexible and comprehensive framework. The three common parameters of performance identified in the Health Diagnostic Tool are public policy and corporate governance, development impact and financial and operational performance.
