Public Sector Governance
- 12th & 13th April 2017
- Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur
Public sector corporations are essential to the success of any nation; they provide essential goods and services that cannot be entrusted to private sector providers. They allow governments to exercise their rights as owners of the enterprise and, in many cases, to delegate the direction and management of the enterprise so that delivery is as effective and efficient as any private enterprise. They are both an instrument of policy and a foundation for society.
Governing these enterprises is difficult. Governance is concerned with doing the right things as well as with doing things right. It requires an understanding of strategic issues and stakeholders and the ability to deliver a precise risk reward balance that is an optimisation rather than a compromise.
This advanced level master class will help senior managers to step up into a governance role and private sector executives to transfer their experiences effectively into the public sector. The case study-based learning style will allow participants to direct the course to the areas they most need to cover and engage them in productive peer discussions that provide practical insights and immediately implementable techniques.
