In line with the earlier discussion of CEB, the Senior Management Network and its Leadership Development Programme had been launched. The key objective of those initiatives was to inculcate among senior officials a new corporate culture to further system-wide coherence. Senior Management Network membership would initially consist of approximately 600 to 1,000 senior staff. The Board highlighted the need to strengthen the competencies and training of staff. The Board also noted in that regard, that further efforts to promote staff mobility were required and highlighted the need to strengthen staff training and its potential contribution to supporting staff mobility.
