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.
