Bolstering the Public Sector

Inaugural CPLG Conference at IESE in Madrid


Public Sector

Spain’s current economic challenges call for deep reforms in public sector management, in order to boost efficiency, effectiveness and competitiveness. In pursuit of this goal, the Center for Public Leadership and Government at IESE will host its first Public Sector Conference on June 24 on the school’s Madrid campus. The event will be held under the theme "Guidelines for Improving Public Sector Management."

During an intensive day of sessions, participants and speakers will analyze keys for defining a new model of public management for Spain, with presentations and round table discussions such as "Public Administration Reform: Master Guidelines," "Regional and Administrative Keys of the New Public Sector Model," "Rationalization of the Jurisdictional System, Efficient Management and Reform of Local Entities," "Market Transparency and Unity: New Political and Economic Goals," and "Economic Diplomacy and Country Vision."

The event will include the participation of high-level representatives from the Spanish government, including Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría and Minister of Finance and Public Administration Cristóbal Montoro.

IESE professors and representatives will provide presentations and act as moderators during the conference. They include Antonio Argandoña, Francisco Iniesta, José Manuel González Páramo, José Ramón Pin, Juan José Toribio, as well as the executive director of IESE’s Center for Leadership and Public Management, Pablo García-Manzano.
