Upcoming Event: International Workshop on Government Performance Management, July 1-12, 2013, New Delhi

Posted by Bill Dorotinsky, The World Bank

The Institute of Public Enterprise (IPE), Hyderabad, and the Performance Management Division (PMD), Cabinet Secretariat, Government of India, are collaborating to organize the ‘International Workshop on Government Performance Management’ from July 1-12, 2013. The enclosed brochure gives the details of this workshop.

This workshop is a unique training program that will cover a wide range of issues that concern the design and implementation of effective performance management in government. As part of its administrative reforms, India has implemented one of the most far reaching systems called the ‘Performance Monitoring and Evaluation System (PMES)’ for government departments.

This training program will compare and contrast this experience with similar experiences in developed and developing countries. It will discuss the entire eco-system that is required for designing and implementing an effective performance management system in Government. We believe that a training program of this caliber and quality has never been organized on this subject anywhere in the world.  As you can see from the enclosed brochure, we have carefully chosen the topics and invited some of the leading theoreticians and practitioners to share their experience with workshop participants.

The Workshop is intended for senior Government Officials, Public Enterprise Managers, Professional Economists, Management Consultants, Journalists, Academicians, and Politicians concerned with improving performance of the governments in their countries. Non-Indian applicants are encouraged to attend, covering their own costs.

This Workshop will provide participants with knowledge, skills, international best practices, and cutting-edge tools for designing and implementing systems for improving organizational performance in the entire government sector (public enterprises as well as core government departments). It is ideally suited for staff members that have been identified for filling top level assignments in their organization in the future.

Please consider participating in this workshop or nominating someone who could benefit from this experience. We will appreciate it if you could forward this information to those who may be interested in this topic.

The deadline for receiving nominations is June 10, 2013.
