State School for Public Administration in partnership with the Finnish Institute of Public Management (HAUS) conducted the IPA Twinning Light Project “Strengthening of the capacities of the State School for Public Administration.” During the project Finnish experts held a seminar “Elaboration of development Scenarios for Public Administration.” The purpose of the seminar was improving the practice of strategic planning with skills of long-term creative reflection and determining scenarios and to strengthen students for determining development visions using that method. The aim of the seminar was to educate students on how to use the method of development scenarios in their own organizations and how to elaborate scenario for Croatian public administration. During the project that method was adjusted to the students of the State School for Public Administration.
