Public sector reform (PSR) is about strengthening the way that the public sector is managed. The public sector may be overextended ? attempting to do too much with too few resources. It may be poorly organized; its decision-making processes may be irrational; staff may be mismanaged; accountability may be weak; public programmes may be poorly designed and public services poorly delivered. PSR is the attempt to fix these problems. To manage the process of fixing these problems, the public sector manager needs the right knowledge, skills and attitude to translate government policies into action that add value to the people. The workshop is therefore designed to equip participants with the capacity required to bring about the desired change for national development.
