The first batch of the Development of Public Sector Productivity Specialists – Foundation Course (DPSPS-FC) officially entered the course’s second phase last 24 March 2023.

The attendees from 10 participating national government agencies–the Bureau of Animal Industry, Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority, Department of Science and Technology Region 6, National Youth Commission, Philippine Navy, Department of Agrarian Reform Central Office, Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office IV-B, National Security Council, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Academy, and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology–had a pitching session of their Productivity Improvement Plan (PIP).

The PIPs were presented for comments and suggestions from their nominating officers and training experts Elena Cruz, former Vice President of the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) Productivity and Development Center and Nina Estudillo, Productivity Expert at Asian Productivity Organization.

Through this session, the participants determined if their PIPs are ready to be transitioned to the pilot-testing stage. This session is part of a four-part stage of the foundation course, which consists of lectures and workshops, pitching, pilot-testing, and knowledge sharing.

The DPSPS-FC, organized by the DAP Center of Excellence on Public-Sector Productivity, is a two-month hybrid training program designed to equip technical staff and officers of the Management Division and related offices of public-sector organizations with the knowledge and skills in measurement, analysis, planning, and troubleshooting to increase their organizations’ productivity.
