PARIS21, in partnership with the UN Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific, will hold its 3rd Statistical Leadership Training for Heads of NSOs in the Asia-Pacific region aimed at strengthening the leadership and management skills of new heads of national statistical offices in the region. The training serves as venue for cross-learning and sharing of experiences and challenges in leading and managing a statistical office in particular, and the national statistical system in general. This year’s statistical leadership training will include a one-day innovation seminar aimed at learning the theory and practice of innovation management in NSOs. It will provide insights into selected innovation models and their relevance for NSSs and the role of leadership in this context.
