Innovation and best practices
The School works with policy authorities, academia and other external players to develop existing best practices in public management into teachable content and integrate them into the courses and programs offered by the School. We also develop and disseminate knowledge on public management and leadership issues to ensure that the federal public service has access to cutting-edge ideas, research and people. In doing so, we benefit from the contributions of others, build organizational capacity, avoid duplication and identify potential synergies.
The identification of priorities for strengthening management practices in the federal public service is based on an assessment of the most critical management service-wide and reflects the views of policy centres and senior executives. Once priorities are determined, the School partners with policy authorities and leading practitioners across the federal public service to identify, analyse and validate best practices in those priority areas. This work is conducted by public management specialists as a key part of the School's support to deputy heads in building the capacity of their organizations.
