Technical assistance (TA) is the process of providing targeted support to an organization with a development need or problem. It is commonly referred to as consulting. TA may be delivered in many different ways, such as one-on-one consultation, small group facilitation, or through a web-based clearinghouse.
TA is one of the most effective methods for building the capacity of an organization. By including TA in a capacity building project, you make the capacity building much more likely to create change. According to some, 10 percent of what gets learned in training is applied on the job, while 95 percent of what is coached gets applied on the job.2 Technical assistance is this coaching.
