The consortium consisting of OÜ Geomedia, OÜ Cumulus Consulting and OÜ Change Partners implements a development program for local government leaders, which was commissioned by Enterprise Estonia (EAS). The objectives of the program are to increase the management and cooperation capacity of local government leaders in the course of the amalgamation reform and to support the leaders in planning and conducting the changes ahead of their organizations. In the course of the program, which takes place between November 2016 and June 2017, different training modules are conducted and a study trip abroad is organized to acquaint the leaders with other governments’ work organizations. Altogether, the program consists of 15 intense training days. Moreover, during the development program the participants carry out one management project in their respective institutions. The training takes place in the framework of the measure for “Local and Regional Development Capacities”.
