Leading and Managing through Strategic Planning and Innovation

    The Ministry of Establishment Training and Pensions under the adminsitration of the Lagos State Government, colaborated with Riveradale Professional Services to train it's staff. Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday challenged the Lagos State Public Service to embrace innovation as a potential solution to solving all problems in the system.

    Ambode spoke at a two-day training for civil servants on “Leading and Managing through Strategic Planning and Innovation,” held in Ikeja area of Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

    Ambode said innovation and the readiness to innovate would stand the Lagos State Public Service in good stead, saying that innovation was now seen as a potential solution to all problems and had become ubiquitous in both the private and public sectors.

    The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Establishments, Training and Pensions, Dr. Benson Oke stated that as governments strove to balance priorities, including the effective allocation of resources and meeting public expectations; it was becoming increasingly clear that new approaches were needed, saying that governments would have to innovate and find ways to make difficult things easy in the areas of service delivery, process improvement, regulation and policy implementation.

    “The first strategy that the Lagos State Public Service may adopt for stimulating and sustaining innovativeness is the “Inside-Out Idea Flows” strategy. Outside-in idea flows have been well popularized and have become a common approach to access crowd-sourced or citizen-sourced ideas from outside the four walls of the organization.
