Developing collaborative governance frameworks

"I am going to be held to higher standards of accountability than any Prime Minister in the modern age. I'm well aware of that and I'm going to focus on being up to that challenge."

Julia Gillard, Prime Minister, September 2010
Accountability, transparency and integrity are the basic principles of good governance, and the key words currently driving Julia Gillard's minority Government reform commitments.

Governance across the Australian Public Service (APS) will now be under intense scrutiny to provide an open Government that is capable of sustaining good governance during policy reform.

In order for policy and service design to become more citizen-focused, traditional governance frameworks need to evolve to allow for more innovation and flexibility in program delivery. To enable this evolution in governance, we must go back to basics and question the key provisions of good governance.

What does governance and accountability mean?
How do agencies develop an approach to governance and accountability that delivers transparency, efficiency and integrity?
What are the leading edge practices, or lessons we can learn from?
Evolving Models of Governance & Accountability will address these fundamental questions and elevate futurethinking surrounding traditional governance frameworks.

What you will take away:

Reflections from leading practices implementing good governance frameworks
Sustainable solutions for delivering governance during policy reform
How to build and evolve collaborative governance frameworks
