Enhancing performance orientation and building leadership

A constant challenge for governments is the efficient delivery of services and operation of programmes. This chapter analyses the strategies implemented by the Brazilian federal government to enhance performance and build leadership in the federal public administration. Taking into consideration the experience of OECD countries, the chapter analyses a number of elements and activities which form the set of drivers of performance in the Brazilian federal government: budget management, staff performance management, the remuneration system, and individual performance assessment. The management of senior managers is seen as a critical element for reinforcing the performance orientation of public governance and public management, and for enhancing the delegation of responsibilities for human resource management.
