The PCRV will be working with the management staff first to identify the problems, and then to develop good practices to address these problems. The PCRV, having identified any issues with the institute’s management, will suggest ways of addressing these problems and present a work plan in collaboration with the management staff, which may include areas such as management and planning, administration, education management, human resources management, project management, and communication and negotiation skills. The exact topics and format will be determined collaboratively, and the PCRV will be working with the schools management to determine the training and teaching methods they will deem effective to acquire the desired results. The ultimate goal is to improve and strengthen the capacity of ISSEG management in good management and administrative practices and policies.
