Peter Bakam explains why self-assessment works for him
In the leaflet Better than the 'Consultant Report Approach': Peter Bakam Explains Why Self-assessment Works for Him, Peter Bakam, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Economic Planning, Kaduna State, speaks about his experiences with the SPARC self-assessment process. He describes why he found it useful and how it differed from previous experiences.
Peter explains that the self-assessment put weaknesses and strengths in perspective, in terms of international best practice. He talks about how government officials in Kaduna State have put together change programmes for several streams with specific target dates, and what this could mean for the state's Eleven-Point Agenda and Nigeria's 2020 Vision.
