Training plays an important role in the effectiveness of the organizations and to the experience of people at work when imparted with developing specific skills for a particular purpose. Investment in training has implications for sustainable productivity through maintaining appropriate skill set relevance now and in the future.
The strategic sense of choices, attitudes and perceptions in seeking sustainable capacity building and specific development alternatives demand an array of research based interventions and solutions.
Local government regulatory and executing institutions need capacity building packages that help them to withstand the contemporary pressure of globalization and enable their human resources to position themselves at vantage points on the global value chains because changes in the new world order conditions are bound to bring about changes in the working environment of local government institutions.
Local government human resources of today may find themselves absolute because of the rapidly working environment and therefore they should constantly update the quality and relevance of their knowledge and skills by looking at the organizations contemporary and futuristic needs and objectives.
Therefore rational decisions by the leadership and experts to develop flexible and tailored curriculum to the contemporary and futuristic local government needs is critical.
For example, the local government institute capacity building strategy should enhance local government human resources skills to monitor and absorb unemployment which globalization generates through the displacement of domestic petty producers and production into the ranks of the active labour force.
Local government human resources analytic skills should be developed through applied empirical researches and methodologies to guide planning interventions and solutions.
For instance, Local government human resources need to prioritise mitigating contemporary unrestrained market forces in their areas of jurisdiction and beyond that enlarges the relative size of the reserve army of labour force and accumulation of avoidable transitional pains of development to the citizens. Unrestrained market forces result into increased relative size of absolute poverty even when capital accumulation occurs at a rapid rate which undermines democracy.
The careful planning and actions at multiple levels aimed at addressing the Local government human resources capacity deficits that render them incapable of achieving their set objectives will make substantive contributions to sustainable inclusive growth.
