Leadership and commerce focus in new CIPFA syllabus

CIPFA introduces "significant changes" to its syllabus

GREATER COMMERCIAL SKILLS and a focus on leadership will form part of CIPFA’s revised syllabus.

CIPFA describes the syllabus update as introducing “the most significant changes in seven years”.

It provides greater prominence to leadership and innovation training as the demands increase on senior public sector staff dealing with cuts and efficiency drives.

Procurement, value for money and performance management form key parts of the syllabus’ increased prominence to commercial skills.
