What is Capacity Building in Public Administration?
Building public financial management skills is an important FreeBalance objective as sustainable PFM reform requires capacity building of the civil service in the countries in which we operate. We believe that skills development and continuous learning is core to enabling governments to achieve improved governance for inclusive and sustainable growth.
The FreeBalance Academy
We developed an approach for customer training, called The FreeBalance Academy. Consisting of online courses developed by FreeBalance and partners, augmented by customized content, this approach has enhanced our ability to build government capacity.
Training is but one method of skills development. Mentoring plays an important role in building capabilities. Our international experts focus on building capacity with government staff. One of the mandatory deliverables of the A-i3+qM methodology is generic product training for government project teams. This provides the level of familiarity required to reduce unnecessary code customization, and has over the years delivered some unexpected benefits. This training is an ideal vehicle for mentoring because it answers the rationale behind adaptable GRP systems and how progressive activation can be enabled.
