Urban public services are framed by governance and institutional frameworks that require specific skills in :
These components are an integral part of the know-how of leaders and managers who are confronted with complex situations related to internal stakeholders in public companies (HR management, organization, purchasing, financing management, customer management, subcontractor management, etc.) or external stakeholders (government, financial investors, donors, development banks, etc.).
The “Water for All” Chair on the general management of water and sanitation services proposes through this workshop to :
- Draw on an international network of experts with experience who have been confronted with critical situations in the field, requiring sharp “soft power” practices and codes of conduct
- Know how to manage integrity within companies, with internal or external actors and human resources
- Manage the risks inherent in any large-scale project that requires transparency and solidarity of the actors to ‘stay the course’ and achieve its objectives
- Knowing how to negotiate and take the time to make your actions succeed while being backed up by a commitment to anti-corruption
This is in line with the skills that the “AgroParisTech-SUEZ Chair” disseminates to all the leaders and managers it has trained for 14 years in 54 countries around the world, through all its programs (https://waterforall.utilities.management ).
The cases dealt with during the workshop will be related to water and sanitation, but also to other types of public policies or public companies, particularly in Africa, Asia, Central Europe, etc.
