Performance Management & Leadership: International Conference Oct. 1-2, 2011

The Hatfield School of Government at Portland State University is pleased to announce our 2nd International Conference on Government Performance, Management, and Leadership. Working in tandem with the School of Management at Lanzhou University in China, the conference has been designed to focus on government innovations that foster institutional trust and accountability, while promoting sustainable solutions. The partnership between the two schools, beginning in June of 2006, has led to greater educational cooperation and exciting research advances regarding public performance management. Other conference cosponsors include: Japan’s Waseda University, Rutgers University, and Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh National Academy for Politics and Public Administration.

The conference will convene from October 1st – 2nd of 2011 with a full speaking schedule of leading scholars and practitioners in the field of performance management. The Hatfield School of Government has issued a corresponding call for papers on themes of importance to conference sponsors. These include: initiatives that integrate “management” and “leadership” innovations as related concepts, growth models which promote sustainable development, and creative strategies for addressing institutional trust and accountability. We hope that both attendees and presenters will consider submitting papers in order to ensure a more diverse and accessible marketplace of ideas. Please note that the submission deadline for abstracts is April 30th, 2011. For registration forms and other information, please visit www.lanzhou-hatfield.pdx.edu.

Whether you are a scholar in the field, a practitioner, or simply an attendee, the Conference provides an excellent opportunity to learn, share and engage in dialogue with others on developing new approaches to performance management that provide sustainability for future generations without sacrificing the stability of present ones. We hope that you will join with the Hatfield School of Government and its partners to chart a new course in performance management and leadership. See you at the conference!

This year, the Center for Public Service launched a major public leadership reform program, the result of collaboration between the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics and Public Administration (HCMA) in Hanoi and PSU’s Hatfield School of Government. This co-produced initiative provides a living laboratory for pioneering a world class leadership program, with the purpose of enhancing robust growth while reversing widespread social disparity and environmental degradation – in both Vietnam and in the United States. This purpose is being actualized through application of the EMERGE Solutions-Seeking Framework, a first-of-its-kind public leadership curriculum, which is accompanied by an active learning pedagogy.  The EMERGE leadership framework and curriculum can be readily adapted for application in different public sector contexts both locally and globally.
