More than 30 senior officials will take a leadership course at Harvard University in May. The six-day course run by Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government will look at management, leadership, policy development and the role of government officials. Secretary for Civil Service Lam Woon-kwong said: 'We have high expectations of its being a valuable capacity-building experience for Hong Kong's senior civil servants as they prepare for the challenges in the run-up to the 21st century.' He said some policy secretaries were expected to take part. 'It will be focused on real-life cases in Hong Kong that we are familiar with. 'It's not a postmortem of whether the policies are right or wrong,' he said. 'We just want to look at it again and re-examine the pitfalls and consequences.' The 30 people who will go on the course had been chosen from a pool of about 300.
