In conjunction with the Civil Service Bureau, the Picker Center has designed one-week programs that provide directorate civil servants an opportunity to examine key challenges in policy formulation and implementation, against a broad international perspective, and to generate practical insights and strategies for enhancing their respective roles in public governance. Specific topics covered include: public management challenges, accountability systems and new modes of governance, managing and evaluating government performance, building community support on government policies, policy development & marketing, and crisis management.
