Presenter  Alenka Mahne
In the 2015, Slovenia adopted the national strategy for public administration development for the period 2015-2020. The need to do so comes from the precondition for fulfilment the European Commissions’ Thematic objective 11: Enhancing the institutional capacity of public authorities and stakeholders and an efficient public administration. The 11 thematic objectives are determined in the Partnership agreement for each EU member for the 2014 – 2020 period, and so for Slovenia. All member states have the commitment to contribute to the Union strategy for smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth (Europe 2020 Strategy) in accordance with EU and national legislation.

The Slovene Public Administration Development Strategy 2015–2020 recognized the importance (1) of transfer of gained knowledge from public servants and officials to co-employees in their working environment, (2) to preserve the competences of older employees, and (3) to improve cooperation of older civil servants with experience in internal training, which will facilitate inter-generational transfer of knowledge to other employees (Strategy 2020, 78).

With a case study research, we would observe the making and realising the strategy in detail – the analyse of the strategy from different points of view would enable us to examine a lot of factors that had an impact on the strategy and would provide evidence to depicts complex, multiple factor processes and multiple perspectives.

Because public administration requires professional and trained public servants, we would try to figure out what focus made Slovene policy to the aspect of knowledge transfer in the strategy for public administration development. We would be interested in the process that produced the strategy, how many stakeholders had the possibility to participate and in which way. Then we would analyse which aims and what reforms (with special attention to knowledge transfer) the strategy introduced in the national public administration. In the end, we would also analyse the progress made in the period from 2015 to nowadays in the knowledge management in the public administration.
