Innovation Skills and Leadership in Brazil's Public Sector

Towards a Senior Civil Service System

image of Innovation Skills and Leadership in Brazil's Public Sector

In Brazil, as in other countries, innovation in the public sector is a core leadership challenge. Reflection is required on who these leaders are, what they should be able to do, and how they should be selected and held accountable to achieve results. This study establishes a new assessment framework for senior civil service (SCS) systems, based on the 2019 OECD Recommendation on Public Service Leadership and Capability. Using this framework, the study assesses Brazil’s current system and recommends specific actions to improve it. The report also contributes to a broader debate on public leadership competencies in public sector innovation, and the systems needed to appoint the most effective people and help them achieve results.

Leadership for a more productive public service

This chapter builds a case for innovation leadership in Brazil’s federal public administration. It reviews literature on the link between leadership and public governance outcomes, showing how leadership influences public service effectiveness and efficiency, and public sector innovation, to improve public services and rebuild trust in public institutions. The chapter concludes with a presentation of a model of supply and demand for leadership competencies, which serves as an analytical framework for the rest of the report.
