Senior Superintendents Lau King-lun and Ng Lok-chun attended the Senior Executive Fellows Program at Harvard Kennedy School in the United States from June 3 to 29, under the arrangements of the Hong Kong Police College.
The program aimed to enhance the leadership skills of government executives, both in the United States and from overseas, to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world. Through the case method approach pioneered by Harvard, the program focused on solving specific real-world problems and outlining strategies and framework for generating solutions for a range of complex issues.
Mr Lau said, "We have worked with members of other organisations in the program to learn how to exercise the authority of different administrative agencies and make effective deployment of resources. This has strengthened my capability to bring positive changes to the Force and other stakeholders." On the other hand, Mr Ng commented, "The program has enhanced my ability to think more critically, adapt and adjust our frame of references to address a myriad of policing challenges."
By learning from prestigious Harvard professors and former high-ranking government officials of the United States, both Mr Lau and Mr Ng agreed that the experience was really precious and truly unforgettable. Under the Force Knowledge Management Framework, they will conduct experience-sharing sessions in their own Major Formation to pass on the knowledge acquired to other colleagues.
