Strategic Leadership in Public Organizations

21 April 2017

Strategic Leadership in a public organization requires a realistic and in-depth understanding of the context they operate in, and constantly reassessing such context in three broad areas: 1) mission and mandate given to the public organization; 2) external political environment it operates under; and 3) internal capacity development and management to deliver outputs and outcomes that are adding values to the society. 

Successful public leaders pay equal attention and time allocation to all three areas, and strategic action plans would also balance the three with short-term and long-term goals of the organization.

This session of the Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series aimed to help participants:

  1. Understand the context of their strategic leadership role to lead changes;
  2. Gain knowledge of the practical tools and framework to develop strategic action plans; and
  3. Understand different leadership styles needed for different situations to lead change and to get results that add values.
