Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government provides experiences for participants both inside and outside the classroom to ensure that public officials are equipped on a daily basis to manage and lead results-driven government agencies and non-profit organizations. In particular, this program provides an opportunity to:
- Develop new conceptual frameworks for addressing program and policy issues
- Explore the relationship between citizens and their government
- Examine the ethical and professional responsibilities of leadership
This three-week program is designed specifically to challenge assumptions about how to exercise leadership in the public sector. During the course of this program, participants learn strategies for establishing meaningful, attainable organizational objectives. Program participants also investigate the process of developing and evaluating policy alternatives and consider options for organizing and deploying resources to achieve these objectives.
