Optimizing Government: A White Paper on Public Sector Modernization
Governments have to thrive in an increasingly complex, rapidly changing context that demands more collaboration and innovation than ever before. Faced with tightening budgets and shifting demographics, public sector leaders must also prioritize fiscal management and employee engagement to effectively maximize talent and resources. How are current structures and processes meeting new demands? How can they be optimized to enhance impact?
Building on the theme of Public Service Next, Canada’s Public Policy Forum explored what government modernization means today, where changes are needed, and how to ensure successful transformation. Based on five roundtable discussions across the country, this white paper identifies challenges and opportunities for driving greater efficiency and effectiveness across the public sector.
