Enhancing the capabilities of technical education in India


The TEQIP Management Capacity Enhancement Programme is an academic leadership programme for TEQIP institutions. This programme has been developed and is delivered by seven Indian Institutes of Management: IIM Bangalore, IIM Indore, IIM Lucknow, IIM Kozhikode, IIM Raipur, IIM Trichy and IIM Udaipur.

This programme aligns with the Good Governance Programme especially in the development and use of governance self-reviews, governance development plans, and the implementation of good governance through institutional governance guidelines documents- the key outputs of the Good Governance Programme.

The good governance website actively promotes the sharing of experiences and the synergies between TEQIP programmes and will be used as a resources for the IIMs in their delivery of the TEQIP Management Capacity Enhancement Programme.


TEQIP Learning Forums for Governance, Leadership and Management

The last TEQIP Learning Forums took place on 13-17 October 2014 to bring together representatives from a selection of TEQIP institutions fully engaged with improving governance, leadership and management practice. Institutions participating in the forums had an opportunity to share experiences, raise questions, and learn about good practices.


What is the TEQIP Management Enhancement Capacity Programme?

TThe TEQIP Management Enhancement Capacity Programme aims to enhance the capacity of leaders and managers of TEQIP institutions operating at all levels. This is an important development priority necessary for the realisation of the TEQIP Project goals and for technical education in India to realise the potential and talents of its students, and all those who lead and manage its technical education institutions.

To assist these developments a common curriculum for academic leadership has been developed by six IIMs covering strategic planning and implementation, people management and corporate governance, and resources management.

In addition, to support the synergy between the Management Capacity Enhancement Programme and the Good Governance Programme TEQIP institutions attending the IIM training courses will be asked to bring their governance self-reviews, governance development priorities and plans, and governance guidelines documents, if they have been developed. If they have not yet developed any or all of the three governance development outputs, discussion on governance improvement will be incorporated into the training courses bringing together support for governance, leadership and management development.

Self-review is a key activity and output of the Good Governance Programme through which institutions can examine their current governance practice. Self-review can be undertaken regularly (for example every 3 -5 years).

Supporting governance development needs of individual governors, governing bodies, institutions and States is a key activity of this and other national and regional initiatives. Another output of the Good Governance Programme is a Governance Development Plan to see how governance development is built into institutional development through clear, timebound action planning.



Implementing good governance practice is the primary outcome of the Good Governance Programme demonstrated by institutions developing their own governance guidelines which sets out institutional governance practices based on the Good Practice Guide for Governing Bodies. This would include a process and timetable for monitoring and reviewing governance practise.
Sharing experience underpins and supports the Good Governance Programme through good governance learning forums, sharing of institutional case studies of good practice, highlighting common gaps, barriers and issues, and helping institutions to learn from one another.
