ABSTRACT

The Senior Executive Service in the U. S. has been rated successful since its beginning on 1979. Its success indicates that the senior executive programs have been successful as well. This study finds the conditions of the U. S. senior executive programs’ success, which are 1) the competitive selection process of applicants, 2) the enhancement of the constitutional underpinning and common culture, 3) the emphasis on democratic leadership, 4) the encouragement of networking and mutual learning, 5) the outsourcing of programs, and 6) the program evaluation by the Return-on-Investment(ROI). The Rho administration plans to begin the Senior Executive Service from 2006. Accordingly, the Civil Service Commission in Korea has designed the Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Program. This study investigates whether the senior executive programs including the planned Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Program have the six conditions, and suggests how these conditions can be adopted in the program.
