Best Masters in Africa 2017. A country’s prosperity depends on its competitiveness which is based on its productivity in producing goods and services. Agents such as consumers, firms, counties and public sector agencies play an important part in creating value and supporting their economic development as well as that of their country, region or county. To achieve competitiveness public officers must learn how to allocate scarce resources among the various options. The allocation of resources is determined by interactions in markets. While good macroeconomic policies, stable legal and political institutions, and improving social conditions create the potential for competitiveness, wealth is actually created at the microeconomic level. This course explores the determinants of competitiveness and successful economic development viewed from a bottom-up, micro-level perspective. It is designed to enable public managers both in central government and county government to hone a unique set of skills that will help them play a catalytic role in enhancing county and public sector competitiveness towards sustained economic growth. Learning Objectives Primary purpose of the course is to analyze the factors that enhance competitiveness within public sectors using microeconomic thinking, concepts and tools. It will provide microeconomics tools that could be used to gain competitive advantage in public policy. This will enable counties to take the lead in economic development and to fully utilize areas of competitive advantage compared to other counties. Program Delivery This course provides an intensive, five-day introduction to microeconomics of competitiveness analysis theory and practice. The program heavily employs the case... [-]
