GUEST OF HONOUR
Dr. Roland Msiska - Secretary to the Cabinet
Dr. Msiska has over two decades at global and national level. He has a rare and extra-ordinary combination of qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience. He has over the years acquired knowledge and skills in transforming public sectors. He is a visionary leader and practitioner of system’s thinking, strategic thinking and scenario based planning. He has also spent time trying to understand why most Government plans are never implemented and evaluation recommendations are rarely implemented.
Dr. Msiska has served on number of regional and international task forces and committees and sought out as consultant by various institutions and governments. He was among the early pioneers who understood that the rapid spread of AIDS in the Sub-Saharan Africa was rooted in the historical development of the region and the failure of systems designed in apartheid-colonial era and post apartheid-colonial era. And therefore the long term response to HIV and AIDS would need a change in the development paradigm and political-economy systems at global, regional and national level.
He has served on several technical committees of bilateral and multi-lateral agencies and in the last 10 years. He has been involved in the design and implementation of transformative leadership taking a historical perspective and combining theories from system’s thinking, strategic thinking, change management, individual and organizational learning and adult learning.
