State capacity plays an important role to achieve public service goals of ensuring good governance and accomplishing development results. Following the promulgation of the federalist constitution in 2015, the common goal is to institutionalize the transformation and deliver the state's commitment. Experience in the new course of the federal system is encouraging as foundations of political and administrative practices are gaining maturity with learning by doing approach. Governments at federal, provincial, and local levels are expected to deliver public aspirations of peace, good governance, prosperity and development. Meeting the public aspirations is possible through ethical, committed, and competent public officials managing resources and relationships.
Thus, the frontline officers of the public organizations need to execute their roles of implementing policy and programmes of the government. They require the capacity to demonstrate themselves as effective change agents for effective service delivery. Hence, capacity building at this level is crucial for the effective functioning of state machinery.
In this regard, NASC has prepared the Management and Development course focusing on the required learning needs of the Gazetted Class-III (and equivalent) officers of the government of Nepal and other public enterprises. The design of the course has followed the premise of ‘core competencies’ as identified during learning needs assessments.
The course aims to widen the perspective building along with skill development through both classroom learning and practical field studies like Engaging with Local Governments (ELG).
The PCMD is designed to augment the following competencies of the participants:
- Building Integrity
It is the ability of an individual to demonstrate and promote ethical standards in personal and professional life. It is derived as foundational competency for the officers and is essential for all other competencies and role of the officers.
- Managing Relationship
This signifies an ability to analyse and build an individual and institutional relationship for creating a performing environment. It is an effective instrument for assuming a managerial role and managing people effectively to achieve intended result.
- Managing Resources
Managing resources refers to an ability to optimize human and financial resources effectively and efficiently to ensure ‘value for money’. This is important for making the managerial role effective for achieving results.
- Delivering Results
This is an ability to perform within given time and resources with ensuring work quality. Improved with all other competencies, this dimension incorporates individual drive for effective service delivery as a performing manager.
