Its orientation toward and ownership of change make a difference in achieving overall transformation goals of the country. Role of the Secretaries as leaders of civil service and government machinery is always crucial to better appreciate or acknowledge the contextual paradigm of governance, redefine policy processes, set strategic direction and lead accordingly. For the purpose, discourse on enhancing perspectives in changing role of senior executives, developing common understanding and building their commitments are key imperatives to move forward in the journey of governance excellence.

The forum will provide opportunities for the senior level bureaucrats to create a discourse about issues and ways forward in redefining the role of bureaucracy and practicing transformational leadership for realizing full potential of bureaucracy in order to realize the transformation of socio-economic situation of the country as envisioned by the new constitution.
