Greater Than Leadership Program for FMIS (GTL4FMIS) >>> Seoul GTL4FMIS workshop was completed. Next phase is the Results Lab...
The GTL4FMIS workshop was held in Seoul from Dec 9-15, 2012. There were 26 participants from 4 countries (Albania, Cambodia, Philippines, and Vietnam) attending this one-week structured leadership course.
The learning modules of GTL were delivered during the first three days through interactive sessions and customized training for each country team. The last two days and final session were dedicated to the development of a Rapid Results Initiative for each country relevant to their ongoing PFM reform process. The FMIS Design and Implementation Challenges were discussed and initial country commitments were defined (expected to be achieved within 100 days after the workshop) during this event as well.
The country commitments are expected to be achieved before November 2013. Once the RRA commitments are finalized and approved by the country teams, the GTL team will organize a site visit including one RRA expert to assist the teams in moving forward.
The participants were also informed about the GTL ( http://www.greaterthanleadership.org ) and FMIS CoP ( https://eteam.worldbank.org/FMIS ) web sites, and learned more about the monitoring mechanism to track and report initial results. Progress in country commitments are expected to be regularly posted on the WBI's GTL4FMIS web page, during the first round of this one-year program.
With support from PRMPS and WBI/KIPF, we plan to organize a workshop in DC in November 2013, for the presentation of results achieved by selected country teams. Most of the participants found this workshop highly relevant and useful to their work, and indicated that they learned new techniques and different approaches to address FMIS technical and non-technical challenges in their projects. Also, the hospitality and openness of the Korean Ministry of Strategy and Finance (MoSF) and the Korean Institute for Public Finance (KIPF) officials were highly appreciated.
FMIS CoP Meeting #18 on Wednesday, Jan 23, 2013 >>> How to benefit from Adaptive Leadership, Strategic Communication and Rapid Results Approach in FMIS projects
We'll organize a seminar in collaboration with the WBI Leadership and Governance Practice (Ms. Cecilia Verzosa, Mr. Manuel Contreras, and Mr. Jae Young Choi) on Wednesday, January 23, 2013, for an introduction to the GTL4FMIS program and share the Rapid Results Approach (RRA) which can be used to address FMIS challenges. Those of you who missed the chance to join Seoul workshop and wish to learn more about the program and ask questions specific to your FMIS challenge, may wish to join from DC or remotely.
This seminar will focus on the following important aspects of the GTL4FMIS program:
+ how to use the adaptive leadership framework in order to distinguish technical problems from adaptive challenges in FMIS projects
+ how to use the stakeholder influence mapping tool
+ understanding of the constrains to collective actions
+ introduction to self-mastery to help relieve stress, and improve self awareness, reflection and responsibility
+ apply basic strategic communication tools for mobilizing key stakeholders through leadership interventions
+ how to leverage Rapid Result Approach (RRA) to address adaptive challenges that stall the reforms
+ define a goal and implementation plan to achieve some practical results in the short term (100-day commitment)
If you are interested in joining via Video Conference (from the Bank offices) or through Skype (from the comfort of your office or home), please send a request to Ms. Aimee Yuson (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will send a separate invitation for this meeting, with event details.
