“Nothing could have been more rewarding for a mid-career public servant like me to be able to re-evaluate, unlearn and re-focus my role in public service with contemporary emerging concepts and practices of public policy management at home and abroad. I strongly believe that what India needs today is management leaders rather than administrators in public service who know the business of bringing in transformational change while focusing on the transaction governance capacity of the public service delivery system.”
