People expect more from governments given the events of recent years. From emergency responses to the redesign of social and economic supports, governments are asked to play a more active role than in the past – driven and shaped by the needs of citizens.
To meet this challenge, government agencies need to rapidly develop new capabilities and new ways of thinking and operating. Many found the COVID experience useful in accelerating reform – such as transitioning to online services or adopting flexible work arrangements – and are keen to build on that momentum. Others are working to navigate and define the COVID recovery landscape, calibrating policy related to areas including regulation, skills, employment and regional development.
Our consultants combine an understanding of government with capabilities relevant to the public sector and policy reform. Our work includes partnering with central agencies on whole-of-government initiatives to develop leadership capability, conducting analysis for Commonwealth, state and territory line agencies to inform policy development, and redesigning services to meet contemporary needs and standards.
