Today the Prime Minister Askar Mamin chaired a meeting of the Managing Committee of the Change Management Training Program for Sectoral Managers, which is implemented as part of the Elbasy’s El Umiti initiative aimed at the high-quality implementation of the “100 Concrete Steps” National Plan.

Applications for participation in the Program were submitted by 2,958 Kazakhstanis, of whom 1,345 candidates were admitted to the second stage of selection and were tested. According to its results, 662 applicants switched to the third stage - interviewing by competency. As a result, 230 participants were recommended for enrollment in the program.
More than half of the selected participants have international education, one third have experience working in international companies, and their average age is 35. 70% of change managers currently work in the private sector and 30% in state and quasi-state organizations.
Program participants will not only be able to contribute to the development of the country by solving industry problems, but will also have the opportunity to improve their industry and leadership competencies. For this, participants are expected to undergo a series of training and coaching programs.
When solving industry problems, change managers will be able to seek the advice of more than 40 mentors specially selected for them, representing both the public and private sectors.
