CURRICULUM

Section 1: Fundamentals of Administration

Introduction
PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION REFORM IS FUNDAMENTAL IN THE EUROPEAN UNION INTEGRATION PROCESS
A well-functioning public administration is a prerequisite for transparent and effective democratic governance. As the foundation of the functioning of the state, it determines a government’s ability to provide public services and foster the country’s competitiveness and growth. It also plays a fundamental role in the European integration process by enabling the implementation of crucial reforms and organising efficient accession dialogue with the European Union (EU). Hence, the EU enlargement criteria recognise and emphasise the need for a country to build a national public administration with the capacity to pursue principles of good administration and effectively transpose and implement the acquis communautaire.
The European Commission (EC) has strengthened its focus on public administration reform (PAR) by outlining six key issues of reform1 and better integrating reform in the enlargement process through Special Groups on PAR and stronger links with accession negotiations.
AIM AND FOCUS OF THE PRINCIPLES OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
The six key reform areas set out by the Commission form the basis of the Principles of Public Administration, as described below.

 

 

Centre of government institutions fulfill all functions critical to a well-organized, consistent and competent policy-making system. Clear horizontal procedures for governing the national European integration process are established and enforced under the coordination of the responsible body. Harmonized medium-term policy planning, with clear whole-of-government objectives, exists and is aligned with the financial circumstances of the Government; sector policies meet the Government objectives and are consistent with the medium-term budgetary framework.

New public management approaches in government emphasise the application of business-like techniques to the delivery of public sector services. One of the most prevalent HRM implications of this trend has been the increasing use of Performance Management (PM) by public organisations. Our objective is to describe trends in PM practice as they have emerged in public organisations undertaking new management reforms across the world. Reviewing the literature during the period between 1988 and 2009, we consider the application of PM in the pursuit of different objectives and in alternative types of civil service systems. We find that some elements of this approach, such as performance appraisal, have been adopted in most nations, but much remains to be done before PM can truly contribute to the ‘performance steering’ envisioned by advocates of customer-driven and managerialist perspectives.

Section 2: Accounting and Financial Management

INTRODUCTION
Accounting, when taken in the totality of its purpose, disciplines, and jargon, can seem a bewildering thicket of
confusion for the layman. Everything from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, to debits and credits, to
balance sheets seem designed to be as obscure and confusing as possible. Yet the underlying purpose of
accounting is quite simple – to record and “account” for all the business transactions of an enterprise.
In an effort to demystify accounting and to provide a basic understanding of the most prevalent accounting
activities in clubs, Club Resources International has developed this handbook for managers and supervisors.
The underlying premise of this handbook is to put all of the accounting activities with which our managers
encounter in the pursuit of their duties into the simplest terms possible. Whenever appropriate we do this by
comparing them to something we each do routinely; that is, to keep track of our personal finances.
We hope that this material will be helpful and will make a sometimes confusing subject a little bit clearer. As
you progress through your career and have more exposure to the principles and terms of accounting, you will
find that much of it will become second nature, but the foundation for your understanding will be the basics
presented here.

To date the bookkeeping and financial management manual was implemented in Liberia as part of a pilot program. Training was conducted in two counties: Margibi and River Gee. A total of 50 beneficiaries from the CFF and CFDC from all 15 counties in Liberia attended the trainings in these two locations. Following the training a ToT workshop was held (in River Gee) to hone the skills further of the top beneficiaries. These ToTs implemented the manual on the local communities in three counties: Ganta, Maryland and River Cess.
The idea of business is aimed at satisfying the needs of customers that lead to the increased wealth of owners of the business in terms of profit making. This manual focuses on how entrepreneurial ideas help to improve the businesses. The following key elements are critical for the improvement of any business; environment of the business, the quality of services provided to customers, product pricing on the market, separating business assets from personal assets and access to credit. With these elements combined with bookkeeping and financial management ideas, including the process of how you manage the money coming into your business and money going out of your business.
This bookkeeping and financial management manual have six modules that look at the basic concepts of bookkeeping and financial management. The following modules in this manual are structured as follows:

    Those persons having been involved in the development, and testing of the content material are convinced that the whole exercise was helpful and has undoubtedly strengthened the bookkeeping and financial management skills of the Liberian stakeholders. We sincerely hope that the training manual will assist the Liberian stakeholders to build their capacities.

Section 3: Quantitative methods for decision making

introduction
In recent years, there has been an undercurrent of tension in the field of community-based research regarding the use of quantitative methods. On the one hand, the more action-oriented proponents in the field make a strong case for the use of constructivist or relativistic paradigms to promote greater engagement with the contextual and community-based influences that impact our areas of study (Lincoln & Guba, 2000). From this perspective, we worry about the potential limitations, or even the potential harms to those who are disenfranchised, of more objective and experimental paradigms (e.g., positivism and post-positivism). On the other hand, as a scientific discipline seeking to expand the influence of our perspective on the way social and community research is conducted, we also recognize the strengths of quantitative methods based on these paradigms to facilitate rigorous hypothesis testing, produce research that is both internally valid and externally generalizable, and assess cause-and-effect relationships between constructs (Johnson & Onwuegbuzie, 2004).

Introduction
Apart from the mean, median and mode are the two commonly used measures of central tendency. The median is sometimes referred to as a measure of location as it tells us where the data are.[1] This article describes the median, mode, and also the guidelines for selecting the appropriate measure of central tendency.

introduction
A model is a simplified representation of part of the real world. In this chapter, we discuss models that can be described mathematically • Models are based on theory. In research, models help to test the theory by making predictions that can be compared with observations • Models also allow the implications of research results to be explored by making predictions for new situations • Each model is built for a specific purpose. A model that is useful for one job may be inappropriate for another task on a similar topic • Models vary in scope from the simple, which you can put together and use very quickly, to the complex that may take much of your project time to develop and use.
