Well-designed organisations, good leadership and management, and the right mix of personal qualities, mindsets, knowledge and skills, combine to create a productive and responsive public sector.
The VPSC conducts research, undertakes assessments, and provides best practice advice on the key elements that create public sector capability. Areas of focus are:
- Design and change organisations and their cultures so they are responsive and productive
- Manage and develop teams and individual staff so that they make the productive contributions to the work of the public sector
- Identify and addressing future workforce needs and gaps
- Use data to make strategic decisions about workforce planning and management.
