Innovating for our future

The Innovating for Our Future pillar of Our Public Service 2020 has six headline actions designed to support innovation, informed policy-making and the application of evidence and evaluation. In addition to refocusing the culture of the public service to one that embraces innovation, this pillar also cites collaboration, greater reliance on established programme and project management methodologies and the development of skills in strategic planning as key actions that are needed to prepare our public service for a dynamically changing, and often unpredictable, future.

Action 6 and Action 10 were selected by the Public Service Leadership Board as priority actions in 2018.

While the priority actions are currently in progress, it is important to highlight that there is significant activity in this pillar theme generally, including many which had been initiated independently of Our Public Service 2020.
