Leaders in Development: Managing Change in a Dynamic World

During times of great change, leadership is critically important. This is particularly true today in developing and newly industrialized countries where the pace of political and economic change is accelerating rapidly. Today's leaders face an increasingly complex tapestry of economic, political, and social challenges. Leaders in Development is designed for leaders in public affairs whose responsibilities place them at the center of these issues. During the program, participants will sharpen problem solving, analytic, and strategic action skills to help them plan, introduce, and sustain major policy and institutional reform, consider new ways to strengthen representative politics and open markets, and manage the challenges of globalization, share experiences with their counterparts in other countries in a collective search for effective responses to change.

Strategic Management of Regulatory and Enforcement Agencies

Strategic Management of Regulatory and Enforcement Agencies examines the distinctive strategic and managerial challenges that surround government agencies’ regulatory and enforcement functions, focusing on issues of social regulation (the control of risks to society) rather than economic regulation (the control of markets). This course explores the operations and management of regulatory and enforcement agencies rather than the reform of law. The course will examine some of the current prescriptions for reform (such as customer service orientation and process improvement) in light of the unique task that regulatory agencies face.  We will also focus on the distinctive character of the risk-control task, and pressures for regulators to prove their worth and effectiveness.
