Capturing and Sharing Good Practices in Preparing the Economic Reform Programme

Feb 6 – 27, 2023 Online No Fee

About this learning event

This online event will help public officials and teams at the ministries of finance and line ministries involved in the Economic Reform Programme (ERP) to advance how they identify, capture, package, and share knowledge that is of great importance in preparing comprehensive ERP documents. Participants will focus on the identification of challenges most frequently encountered in reform design, and seek possible solutions to the identified challenges. We will guide them on how to capture, package and share the best practices and lessons learned in preparing and implementing the ERP. To demonstrate the understanding and application of discussed subject matters, we will invite participants to engage in a project where we will jointly create an online course “How to Start with the ERP?” that will be available to newcomers and those interested in preparing ERPs in Autumn 2023.

This event will especially benefit team leaders and those who are experiencing the fluctuation of staff. It affects that the knowledge is lost and the need for fast onboarding is high. The event will help officials better understand the importance of systematic knowledge management as a mechanism for knowledge retention. The key objective is to learn how to capture and share good practices to enhance the flow of the right information to the right people within their teams and institutions to achieve desired results during the ERP process. We will answer questions, such as what is critical knowledge in the ERP, and how to capture and share it to improve the ERP process.

Participants will learn and apply different methodologies of knowledge capturing, packaging and sharing. They will navigate through FISR Library, a collection of key knowledge, learning materials and shared experiences that were captured during the regional Fiscal Implications of Structural Reforms (FISR) project, and has been upgraded within the ongoing “Structural Reforms Better Integrated Within Fiscal Frameworks” (FISR2) project. They will discuss ideas for a knowledge repository to systematically capture, organize, and categorize knowledge-based information on ERP process.

The online course will consist of two 3-hour long online sessions and a capstone project (team assignment). Participants will get access to the learning materials on the discussed topics through the CEF Online Learning Campus (OLC). They will have a chance to ask questions and receive support throughout the course.

During the course, you will:

  • Review key steps in preparing ERPs (current situation analysis, prioritization, description of measures, selection of results indicators, implementation cost estimation, stakeholder consultations, etc.)
  • Learn about the importance of systematic knowledge capturing and sharing of critical knowledge and experiences in the ERP process
  • Learn practical techniques on how to identify, capture, package and share critical knowledge on the ERP process within and across teams and institutions
