The European Union (EU) conducted a training course, in Jordan as part of the implementation of the technical support project for Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) with the aim of supporting the management of government achievement.
The 12-day course, in which representatives of ministries participated in, deals with the management of government achievement in support of the government's efforts to achieve its priorities for the years 2019-2020.
The course, which was opened by Civil Service Bureau (CSB) President Nidal Batayneh, is the first of its kind in Jordan, according to a statement issued by the EU on Saturday, designed to build skills needed to tackle complex tasks associated with government achievement.
"Achievement involves progress and results, so the achievement champions must be skilled in a number of areas, including change management, leadership and project management, data analysis, conflict resolution, facilitation skills, and communication," said the Prime Ministry representative Muhannad Rawashdeh.
According to the statement, the first training course was held on April 17 and 18, and covered policy issues, strategic planning, strategic analysis, data analysis, data interpretation and reporting.
The course was presented by Michael Barzelay, Professor of Public Management at the prestigious London School of Economic and Political Sciences.
Professor Barzelay is widely known for his 1992 book, Breaking Through Bureaucracy: A New Vision for Managing in Government.
"Building the government's ability to effectively meet its commitments allows turn promises to meaningful gains for citizens," said EU Ambassador to Jordan Andrea Mathieu Fontana.
"These courses are an exceptional opportunity for team members to learn about best practices in the EU and to contribute to present the government's program", Fontana added.
