Looks at ways of improving policy management from personnel, organisational and institutional perspectives.



Roles and Responsibilities in Policy Management

Management reforms within government have led to the search for enhanced clarity of role and tighter lines of accountability with a desire to re-define the political relationship between political policy-making and administrative policy implementation. How the relationship between political leadership, administration and policy analysis is managed could have far-reaching implications, both for the technical quality and the democratic content of government. The public service requires a clearer political lead, and by distinguishing the role of senior administrators from that of politicians, strategic objectives will be more easily separated from operational processes.
