Following the launch of Fiji’s public enterprise reform in 1993 that involved commercialisation and corporatisation to create solutions in the ailing government commercial companies (GCCs), not much improvement has been seen in recent times. Many questions were raised in an attempt to determine the cause of the problem. In return, a lot of explanations and answers were presented and the key competencies of senior managers in charge of GCCs were acknowledged amongst the myriad of issues raised. This study seeks to bring to the fore key competencies central to sound performance of GCCs according to senior managers of GCCs following the reform. This is based on several interviews and questionnaires conducted on senior managers of GCCs. The findings of this research are important for many reasons. In particular, it helps government officials identify and address the training needs of senior managers of GCCs.
