International development partners, private, NGOs and the public sector have bemoaned the lack of human capacity in formulating policy and implementing projects and programs as one of the reasons for low absorptive capacity of development assistance and proper utilization of national resources to address societal needs and enhance service delivery.
The economic growth and development of many African countries, especially within the West African region, is impeded by this lack of requisite management capacity in the public sector. Many nations now focus on talent management and building a generation of qualified and competent public servants.
