The volume that follows deals with two separate but very closely related issues that, when taken together, will have a profound impact on the quality of governance of the world’s nations during the next several decades. These two topics are how one best achieves true excellence in public administration education and training and how one prepares both the current and the next generation of governmental leadership to most effectively deal with the complex problems which the world’s nations face. Clearly, these are issues that are highly interrelated. While it’s true that no doubt some leaders are, in fact, born, not made, it is equally true that the quality of leadership found in any government can be significantly enhanced by effective education and training. Such efforts will focus not only on leadership techniques, but also will provide governmental leaders – both political and administrative – with a broader understanding of the critical issues with which all governments are increasingly having to deal.
