Government Innovation and Leadership

Just as the public sector needs to innovate to improve the lives of citizens, public agencies also need to improve themselves. But how can government innovation overcome institutional silos, sluggish bureaucracy and a risk-averse culture to help agencies become the highly effective organisations people need? And just as crucially, how can they engage their citizens to repair their damaged trust in democracy?

We look at global trends and specific examples of innovation in the public sector around the world. Our coverage of this issue includes a strand on the “future of government”, in partnership with the Victoria State Government’s Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Victorian Public Sector Commission, examining cutting-edge ways governments are transforming themselves to better serve citizens.
