One of the most difficult aspects of taking on a #leadership role is determining what you can do as a #manager to encourage your staff. As a leader, you're probably wondering how to best motivate your team members.

It's easy to assume that money is what motivates people, but this statistic shows that altruistic factors like pride and recognition are even more important.

Resource allocation in the public sector is determined by both the criteria and process of decision making and the process of budget ex*****on.

Inevitably, the institutional breadth of the fundamental budgeting problem has increased as a result.

PESTEL analysis is a #strategicmanagement technique that helps #public and #privateorganizations discover #macroeconomic issues to consider.

By answering these questions, an organization might be more or less inclined to shift, exploit, mitigate, control, or capitalize on different opportunities/risks.

Which one do you think is the most important question in each category and why?

How do I get a copy of a past certification? 2007, Certified Government Administrative Manager. I was told the Performance Institute was sold. Whom may I contact to get a copy of this certification. Were they thrown away, are they on a cloud server someplace? There has to be a way to get past certifications regardless of whether a business has been sold, it not like the company has gone out of business.
