Towards improving management in public service

Azlan Othman

The Executive Development Programme for Senior Government Officials and Middle Management Government Officials is a leadership programme, which is continuously updated according to the latest global trends, Public Service Department Acting Director General Dr Norfarizal bin Othman said.

It aims to ensure that the quality of leaders will be nurtured in accordance with the
current situation, he added.

Dr Norfarizal said this at the opening of the 29th Executive Development Programme for Senior Government Officers (EDPSGO) and 31st and 32nd Executive Development Programme for Middle Management Officers (EDPMMO) at the Prime Minister’s Office building yesterday.

The leadership programme is also intended to further highlight the participants’ capabilities and abilities as leaders in the civil service who are ready to hold the trust and take on responsibilities as well as bring positive change and proactive innovation in line with Brunei Vision 2035 as well as the Prime Minister’s Office’s vision of excellent leadership and governance.

Although the nation is in the Early Endemic Phase, the programmes are still operated adapting to the new norms and in accordance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs). The wisdom behind this challenge is to be more diligent in working on new methods in good collaboration with stakeholders to improve the operation and management in the public service.

Some 28 individuals participated in the EDPSGO and 56 in the two EDPMMO organised by the Public Service Department and a component under the Civil Service Leadership Pipeline.
