‘State PEs must emulate Central PSEs’ efficiency’

SCOPE Director General U D Choubey has advised state level public enterprises (SLPEs) to assimilate with the professional management of Central public sector enterprises (PSEs) to enhance their share in the economy of their respective states and in turn the national economy.

Speaking at the inaugural session of a seminar on ‘Training Need Assessment in SLPEs’ organised by the Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) at the SCOPE Convention Centre, he focused on training need assessment.

Training needs at SLPEs should be identified at the organisational,  group and individual levels for ensuring improvement of performance, he said.

Planning Commission Secretary Sindhushree Khullar, Secretary (DPE) O P  Rawat and senior DPE officials too addressed the inaugural session of the seminar.

Choubey said that the board structure of Indian public sector enterprises is complex and heterogeneous in nature because they have three distinct players, ie functional directors, government nominee directors and independent directors.

Training of all these three layers is important for managing the company effectively as well as meeting the expectations of various stakeholders, he pointed out.

‘SCOPE has identified three popular programmes, namely the Global Leadership Programme, Corporate Governance and Board Level Interviews for capacity building in central public sector enterprises,’ added Choubey.

‘These programmes have been very popular and are in great demand. SCOPE is ready to accommodate some board level persons in such programmes in case nominations are received in time,’ he assured.‘SCOPE will extend all assistance and cooperation in this regard in the larger interest of the states’ and national economies, Choubey added.*

Speaking on the occasion, Sindhushree Khullar emphasised the need for skill development in state enterprises.

O P Rawat informed that a lot of reforms have been introduced such as the MoU exercise, QPR reviews and empowerment of Boards.
