Description: How does public-sector governance work in practise and where do the challenges lie? Drawing on the experience of prominent Canadian leaders, this report, prepared by the Public Policy Forum, will also address the following questions:
• How do elected officials, political staff and the public service work together at the executive level of government? And why do these relationships matter?
• What has prompted a trend towards a centralization of authority, and what are the consequences? Are there effective checks and balances?
• Can demands for short-term responsiveness be balanced with the need for medium and long-term planning and strategies?
