Dr. David Wang’ombe, Dean School of Management and Commerce, was in Kathmandu, Nepal, to deliver a case writing workshop to the faculty of Senior Administrative Staff College (School of Government). The course was a training of trainers for the Senior Executive Development Program (SEDP) that targets the senior most government officers of the Republic of Nepal. The program is funded by Adam Smith International and organised by the Centre for Inclusive Growth (CIG). The workshop was part of the mentoring process that Dr. Wang’ombe has been providing to the faculty for the last six months. The staff are working on 6 cases, which will be used for teaching public policy for government bureaucrats in Nepal.
