Continuing Development Programmes

In addition to our Leadership Milestone Programmes, HLC also offers Continuing Development Programmes to alumni of the Milestone Programmes, as well as high-performing and promising healthcare leaders who will benefit from these learning opportunities. 
The Continuing Development Programmes focus on further in-depth coverage of system-level topics or frameworks/competencies that may have been introduced in the Leadership Milestone Programmes, and are relevant for healthcare leaders.  The Continuing Development Programmes are also one of the avenues through which HLC provides on-going support for the development of public healthcare leaders in their leadership journeys. 

Participation in the Continuing Development Programmes is by nomination from Ministry of Health, MOH Holdings, Public Healthcare institutions and institutions within the public healthcare family (including statutory boards and agencies). 

Dynamic Governance

Dynamic governance is the key to the success of public institutions i​n the face of increasing globalisation and unrelenting technological advancements. During this three-day course, Prof Neo Boon Siong will use the framework of Thinking Ahead, Thinking Again and Thinking Across in his best-selling book “Dynamic Governance”, to explain how governments can embed the culture and capabilities that enable continuous learning and change in the midst of uncertainty and rapid change. Case studies and examples from Singapore’s public sector in institutionalising culture, capabilities and change are used. HLC has prepared case studies specific to healthcare for this course to provide meaningful and valuable insights for transforming Singapore’s public healthcare organisations​.
