The twenty participants at the workshop were drawn from ten CG research centers, the CG secretariat, FARA Ghana, KARI and ICIPE Kenya.
The success of the first course held in Bangkok in 2007, prompted the decision to run three more trainings in Africa, Asia and America. The broad objective of the workshop is to equip the senior managers in the CG and associated institutions with vital complementary managerial skills that are essential for communication, team management, effective collaboration and ultimate delivery of required output. Other specific objectives include.
- To prompt an understanding of oneself and its effect on managerial style and team performance
- To inculcate the intricate principles of effective team work.
- To provide knowledge base on the initiation of collaboration, network and alliance management for desirable research and development outcome.
