About the workshop
One of the biggest issues challenging the public sector is measuring effectiveness of public service delivery. Public sector bodies need to be outcome oriented and think in terms of performance impact aligned with their core business as a public body. Performance evaluation often relies on the output of people’s work and the type of impact it has on a particular outcome. All organisation’s depend on their leaders, managers and front-line staff to fulfil their organisation’s mandate and achieve these outcomes and results. We are at present in unprecedented times and never has the public sector been required to deliver their services in such challenging times and in particular getting the best of their people is crucial.
Those who are leading their organisations at present have huge demands and pressure on them. This one-week workshop may give those leaders and senior managers an opportunity to take some time to reflect and gather their thoughts for the future with a view to delivering enhanced services to the public, as well as recognising the need to increase productivity, motivate their teams and recognise the need for a committed workforce to ensure key services are delivered.

• Review of business outcomes required for the future
• New ways for the workforce to plan and deliver the future requirements of the service
