The Senior Executive Service is comprised of leaders charged with leading the continuing transformation of the Fiji Public Service and Fiji Government as a whole. These leaders possess well-honed executive skills and share a broad perspective of government and a public service commitment that is grounded in the Constitution. The Public Service is committed to deliver results, and Senior Executives drive those results.
The most enduring legacy to the future of the Fiji Public Service is the proper development of its Senior Executives. The ability of Senior Executives to achieve results can be met by establishing a strong learning environment that supports both initial and ongoing training and development of both current and future leaders.
In view of this increasing emphasis on leadership, we believe the time is right to recommit and strengthen the Fiji Public Service to developing effective future leaders. We are issuing the following guidelines to assist our Senior Executives in carrying out their agency's managerial development responsibilities.
In planning for leadership development, Agencies ensure the following criteria are met:
Integration with other related human capital management processes, such as succession planning, talent management, and performance management. Thorough training needs analysis based on an identification of competency gaps and current mission or business goals and challenges. Systematic evaluation of the extent of learning, its application, impact, and where feasible, its return on investment.
