SAI Leadership is widely recognised in the INTOSAI community as the most effective moving force, which transforms an SAI. Supporting SAIs in sustainably enhancing capacities and performance is impossible without SAI leadership driving positive change.

Changed SAI YOUNG LEADERS contributing to positive change in SAIs

During the initiative selected SAI YOUNG LEADERS follow a syllabus that covers four broad clusters – Discover Self, Grow People, Discover Universe and Create Value. The syllabus is covered through SYL Online Interactions, SYL face to face interactions, SAI level interactions in their own SAIs and development and implementation of a change strategy project. SYLs are exposed to theory and best practices by leadership development practitioners, IDI, INTOSAI and regional resource persons. They have opportunities to interact with SAI leaders, leaders from different walks of life and peers, to share experiences and contextualise the theoretical concepts that they are exposed to. They work with case scenarios and a SAI change strategy project for applying their learning to effect change.
