Economists agree that advancement in any discipline is a catalyst for real productive growth; one that raises the standard of living of the innovative society and, over time, perhaps even the standard of living of neighbouring societies, if not all societies.
Innovation requires two main ingredients: the factors of production and a proclivity for discovery. The first is a matter of having adequate access to capital – be it financial, intellectual, natural (including human) or produced – and the second is a matter of behaviour, a sort of resourcefulness.
International aid agencies, along with the entire charity fabric championed by the United Nations, typically focus on the first ingredient and we, at Ghubril Ltd., support their impetus by offering to evaluate their development programs. We also equip corporate boards with performance monitoring tools that hold the executive suite accountable and measure the return on social investment. Finally, in recognition of the second factor of innovation, we supplement our consultative services with research services that offer our subscribers the means to make informed policy decisions.
