Education of Competent Personnel for Public Administration in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Training for action and work in the modern age, characterized by rapid and constant changes, is imposed as an imperative. The key to this is education, that is, the educational system. The education system has become one of the essential pillars in the development of modern societies and countries. The educational system produces personnel with different knowledge, titles, and skills based on which they compete in the labor market. Human capital has become the key to the success and efficiency of almost all institutions and organizations. These institutions include public administration institutions. One of the problems faced by public administration is the need for more educated and competent personnel. This problem is particularly pronounced in transition and developing countries, including Bosnia and Herzegovina. One of the essential reforms that Bosnia and Herzegovina needs to implement on the way to its democratic and social development and European integration is the reform of public administration. More needs to be said about the importance of educating personnel who work or will work in the administration as a significant and essential resource and factor for the success of the public administration reform. The presented examples show that the education of personnel in the field of administration and for work in the administration gives excellent results in strengthening the public administration through improving the skills and competencies of the employees in the administration. Through a comparative analysis of the administrative school model, we will identify positive practices in this area, which will be applied to implement the administrative school model for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Investing in the education of employees to work in public administration is justified and necessary, which ultimately results in a reformed, efficient, and effective public administration, which is what Bosnia and Herzegovina strives for.
