Project Khaedu – Field Assignment

22 August 2016

This module is presented over (5) working days.

Booking Closure Date: 2016-08-05


President Zuma referred to 2010 as a year of action in his State of the Nation Address and said:

‘The defining feature of this administration will be that it knows where people live, understands their needs, and responds faster.’

Service delivery remains one of the major challenges facing national, provincial and local governments. Following the introduction of the Whitepaper on Public Service Transformation, a study undertaken in 2003 found that the Batho Pele principles which are meant to put people first, are still viewed as something outside of a manager’s scope of responsibility.  Cabinet therefore decided that all members of the Senior Management Service must, during every performance review cycle, visit the coalface of service delivery and participate in activities to find solutions to service delivery challenges at key government sites.

Project Khaedu has been designed to prepare managers for these visits to service delivery points.  “Khaedu” means “challenge” in Tshi-Venda, and Project Khaedu has been designed as an action learning programme to empower managers, through various processes of learning reinforcement and practice, to bring about change within their own area of operational control.
