CAG Concludes Training Programme to Strengthen Capabilities of Guinean Public Service Leaders
- The Chandler Academy of Governance (CAG) collaborated with the Singapore Cooperation Enterprise (SCE) to train high potential government leaders from Guinea.
- The sessions were designed to equip the participants with skills in policy implementation, personal effectiveness and leadership, project management and problem solving.
- The programme was conducted over three segments with participants visiting Singapore to learn about Singapore’s experience in policy implementation.
Led by Mr Cidi Wee, CAG Expert, the programme was designed to equip 15 high-potential Guinean public sector leaders from different ministries with skills in policy implementation, personal effectiveness and leadership, project management and problem solving. To enhance retention of learning, participants were required to complete a capstone project where they had to identify a real-life issue back home, explain its impact and present proposed solutions to address the problem.
Participants presenting their capstone projects to programme sponsor, Mr Sun Xiushun, President, Winning International Group, Mr Kong Wy Mun, CEO, SCE and representatives from CAG and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP).
The programme was held over three segments – two in Singapore and one in Guinea, from 25 September to 15 December 2023. The segments held in Singapore enabled participants to delve deeper into Singapore’s experiences via learning journeys to the heartlands to observe policy implementation on the ground and through discussions led by current and former civil servants.
