As the demands on the quality of human capital are accelerating, developing sophisticated higher education and professional development systems becomes a critical ingredient of economic development. Human capital development creates a virtuous cycle by supporting rising productivity and consequently expanding the pool of resources that can be channeled to support the education sector development. There is no single best practice in the field but the highest performing systems have a few things in common:
- They constantly innovate and experiment with new approaches.
- They are aligned with the continually changing needs of businesses and national economic development priorities.
- They have leaders who motivate and align key stakeholders.
- They have dense linkages with global educational space.
