A Compendium of Topics to Support Management Development in National Meteorological and Hydrological Services
The present compendium of topics for management development is intended to help a NMHS establish management development programmes that meet the needs and culture of the organization. The provision of curricular (i.e. aims, learning outcomes and content), briefing notes, sources of further reading and discussion topics should make it easier to establish a bespoke programme rather than having to start from scratch. Even if an external agency provides the components of a management development programme, having the compendium should make it easier to specify what should be included. Regional Training Centres could also use the compendium as a basis for developing a management development programme that addresses the needs of the region it serves. Finally, the compendium could be used to decide what aspects of management development could be included in scientific and technical training courses.
