Issue Date: 2014

Series Title: Governance and public management series
Abstract: The success and fate of governments around the
globe is not only based on the success of political
leaders, but also on the top civil servants who lead
the apparatus of government. Given the enormous
tasks of leading society and changing the culture
of government itself, the training and retraining of
top civil servants is vital. This important collection
is a one-of-a-kind study that not only provides
information about the where, what, and how of the
training of top civil servants around the world, but
also offers up-to-date cultural, political, economic
background on both larger countries such as the
United States, United Kingdom, and Germany, and
also smaller countries such as Colombia, Namibia,
and Belgium. It explores in detail the factors that
result in different country perceptions of the
importance of executive training, and the reasons for the variations in its quality and robustness.
