Management strategies are analysed.

MANAMA: Bahrain Institute of Public Administration (BIPA) hosted its first workshop on Leading in the Public Sector at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre.

The workshop was hosted under the patronage of Cabinet Affairs Minister Shaikh Ahmed bin Ateyatalla Al Khalifa and attended by dignitaries from ministries and government organisations.

The three-day workshop was the first module of a comprehensive Executive Leadership Programme organised by BIPA and the National School of Government from UK. The content of the workshop focused on three subjects leadership, policy making and media management.

The participants were provided with an insight on the history of leadership, covering a variety of tools and techniques and looking at the relationship between leadership and management.

Group discussions were held on the role of a leader and a variety of frameworks, which highlighted areas to which leaders in government organisations need to pay attention, including the links between individuals, teams, tasks and strategies, operations and front line.

The workshop concluded with a review of the participants' learning and an opportunity for them to plan the application of their learning with the support of a colleague.

A feedback survey was conducted with the participants on all three days and the comments received from the participants indicated the need and the value of such an extensive workshop.

Participants appreciated the content of the workshop and said that the information and knowledge that they have been provided with at the workshop is intensive and valuable.

What was most admired was that the management tools, strategies and methods discussed were applicable to their work environment and the participants felt that the workshop enabled them to increase efficient leadership in their place of work. It was highlighted that the interactive style of the workshop, case studies and examples shared by the facilitators made the workshop very interesting and out of the ordinary.

Various participants complimented the BIPA for the quality of the first module contents and the facilitators on their professional presentations, style and methods stating, they felt the material for the programme was well prepared and well designed to apply to their work environment which makes it highly effective and practical.

BIPA director-general Dr Raed Benhams said the organisation has planned a follow-up event in June in which participants will share their applied learning experiences.
