Current Good Practices and New Developments in Public Service Management

Commonwealth member governments have been taking part in a unique mapping exercise, identifying the actual changes which have been made in some key areas of public service management. The Public Country Profile Series sets out the results of the mapping exercise, country by country, to provide an unprecedented insight into the real managerial and structural changes under way in the public service.

In providing some firm ground on which those public servants, both elected and appointed, who are faced with the challenge of public service reform can stand while assessing the options available, the Public Country Profile Series marks a milestone in the debate concerning the management of the public service.




This document, outlining much of the Government of Canada's recent experience regarding public service reform, was created in response to the Commonwealth Secretariat's global survey of public service reform within the Commonwealth countries. This initiative and others like it, for example the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's public management surveys, stand as evidence that there is a public service reform movement underway throughout the world. International surveys serve the important role of enabling people in different countries to share their experiences, learn from one another, and adapt one another's best practices to their own context.
