A Proposed Strategy for Ensuring the Public Service of Canada has the Executive Cadre it Needs to Meet its Strategic Objectives

Report by Peter Larson, David Zussman

This brief report, prepared by Larson and Zussman on behalf of the Public Policy Forum, discusses executive development in the public service. The Public Policy Forum was asked by the Treasury Board Secretariat to diagnose issues and challenges facing executive development in the public service, and to propose a conceptual model for building overall executive talent capacity.

As a starting point for this investigation, the Public Policy Forum examines the roles of various players, overall needs, and system challenges in the public service. In this report, Larson and Zussman restrict the study to addressing the most pressing development needs of the top cadre of public service executives. They conclude that, ultimately, the strategy adopted by the federal government for its own senior executives will serve as an important guide for developing activities for all civil servants that is consistent with the overall values of the organization.
