The Management Development Series (MDS) has been a long-standing, skill-based statewide program offering a variety of management/supervisor classroom courses to all Oregon state agencies, boards, commissions and local governments. Plans are in place to re-deploy the management development programs. MDS will be comprised of 4 programs:
1. Developmental is for aspiring managers
2. Foundational is for new managers (up to 3 years as a manager)
3. Mid-Level is for experienced managers
4. New to State is for experienced managers but new to state government
The first program to be re-deployed is the Foundational training program.
