Staying Ahead of the Game: The World’s Best Public Service

Just over a year ago, the Australian Government concluded a major review of the Australian Public Service. Ahead of the Game, the review’s final report, contained 28 actions to help create ‘the World’s best public service’.

One year on, what has changed?

Later this year, CPD hopes to run public workshops to hear how various government agencies are implementing these actions.

CPD intern Rob Harding-Smith has analysed over half of the 182 submissions made to the Moran Review, examining the relationship between concerns and issues raised by public service stakeholders and the 28 recommended actions.
