Absorptive means, in different phrases, is a byproduct of the donor-recipient courting. An prior research by means of the authors brought a brand new framework for measuring absorptive potential. This quantity applies it to...

The authors determined whether the obstacles to success—called missing prerequisites—were associated primarily with the recipient’s technical implementation capacity, with the recipient’s political economy, or with the donor’s delivery capacity. In all the cases studied, success was constrained not only by recipients’ implementation capacity but also by problems of donor knowledge, culture, processes, and incentives. Where the programs failed to achieve their objectives, it was not only because recipients were unable or unwilling to implement them, although that was often the case as well.
What planning assumptions tend to lead donors to exceed absorptive capacity? What planning assumptions might lead to program designs and scales that are more realistic with respect to absorptive capacity? 1 The hypothesis tested was that absorptive capacity is determined primarily by the donor-recipient fit. To test this hypothesis, it was necessary to develop a framework through which donor factors, recipient factors, and joint factors could be analyzed. 2 This framework has six major sections, each asking the following main questions: Intended Outcomes.
