MAKOM, a joint venture of the Ministry of the Interior and MAOZ, and a part of the government resolution,  “Atudot Le’Israel” – is building a tri-sector management pipeline for Israel’s local government sphere. The joint venture identifies, trains, and networks leaders and accelerates initiatives of senior positions in the local government system, civil society, private sector, and central government with the goal of fostering a generation of mamlachti (common good) leaders capable of and effective at leading change in the local sphere.

At this current time, registration for this year's MAKOM Joint Venture is closed.

MAKOM Joint Venture Vision

Strengthening the local sphere, with an emphasis on the geographical and social periphery, in order to improve public services provided to the citizen, reduce social gaps, increase quality of life, improve social mobility and foster local communities.

Program Goals

Creating a Diverse Network

Creating a diverse network of leaders who promote mamlachtiut (common-good behaviors and actions) in the local sphere.

Leadership Capabilities

Developing and strengthening leadership capabilities and leading significant change processes in the local sphere.

Personal and Professional Skills

Developing leaders’ personal and professional skills while enhancing their management capabilities.

Concept of a Local Public Servant

Promoting a concept of a local public servant that places residents at the center.

Program Content

Approximately seven weeks of intensive learning (about 45 days) spread throughout the year, including two weeks in the U.S., one of them at Harvard Business School.

“On the Job Training” format that allows the fellows to continue working while participating in the program, allowing them to immediately apply their knowledge and skills to real-world situations.

Learning topics – getting to know the public sphere on the community, municipal, national and international level, with an emphasis on economic development and a “residents at the center” approach.

Familiarity with influential bodies in the local, civil and business sectors, knowledge of central government institutions at local and national levels, and lectures by senior government officials, business leaders and various experts.

Dedicated accelerator program that includes the provision of professional tools, resources, and expert consultation to accelerate change-process projects.

Peer learning and shared consultation about challenges faced by the fellows in their professional positions.

Admissions process

A synchronized admissions process across the ADVOT, MAKOM and MAOZ Employment Ventures, in order to pool resources and enable an ideal match between candidates and programs, will open in Spring 2020.

The admissions process includes four stages; at each stage, we will summon the most qualified candidates from the previous stage:

  • Physical attendance on the assessment day and the admissions committee is a prerequisite for continuing the process! At the advanced stages of the process, applicants will be asked to present a supervisor’s approval to join the program.
  • The admissions process dates (evaluation days and admissions committees) are not final and are subject to change.
