Advancing Effective Public Sector Leadership

It is critical for the government to harness leadership excellence for the delivery of essential services, policy design and implementation and to meet the growing expectations of the Australian public. As the public sector evolves in an era of transformation, innovation and digitalisation there is a clear need to develop the skills required to succeed as an executive public sector leader.
