2017 APMP-DEC "Leadership training"

APMP-DEC "Leadership training" is designed to provide new or future leaders of APMP-DEC NMIs, including new TC Chairs and Chair-elect depending on availability of places and who have shown potential for leadership, with the skills, knowledge and tools to help them participate in the mechanisms of the CIPM MRA.

The training will provide participants with a better understanding of the role of international organizations and will enable them to be highly effective in their involvement in the CIPM MRA relating to comparisons, the CMC review process, use of the KCDB, strategic plan and focus groups, by combining theoretical and practical perspectives and bringing important personal contributions to the further development to their country.

In the Results-Based Management session, the structured "log-frame" tools will be used to plan projects that could be implemented in the participants' countries. This session will introduce a method that can be applied to help define a country's needs and set priorities in metrology.
