IFS officers who are going to be considered for promotion to Deputy Secretary after completion of their first round of postings abroad are required to be prepared for their new and significantly expanded responsibilities. Transition from the role of “doer” to a managerial position often comes with challenges. Officers need to visualise issues in totality, seeing the linkages and interconnections across organization. MCTP Phase-I fills the knowledge gaps in core functional areas as well as in essential management disciplines. It facilitates the transition of officers from Analyst to Integrator, Tactician to Strategist, Bricklayer to Architect, Problem Solver to Agenda Setter and Supporting Cast Member to Lead Role.
COURSE METHODOLOGY: The training methods adopted are lecture, group discussions, exercise, case studies, field visits and rural immersion.
DURATION: 4 Weeks
ELIGIBILITY: This course is for IFS officers with 5-8 years of service
