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 through the entire range of learning courses and programs offered at the School. We also develop and disseminate knowledge on practical public management and leadership issues, aligned with public service priorities, to ensure that the 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 top priorities for strengthening management practices in the public service is based upon an assessment of the most critical management issues requiring attention public service-wide, and reflects the views of policy centres and the senior executive community. Once priorities are determined, the School partners with policy authorities and leading practitioners across the public service to identify, analyse and validate best practices in these priority areas. This work is conducted by public management specialists and is a key part of the School's support to Deputy Heads in building the capacity of their organizations.
Our selection of learning publications provides access to relevant, accessible and leading-edge practices in public management.
The School's University Relations Strategy is aimed at strengthening linkages between the federal public service and Canadian universities to ensure that the public service has access to cutting-edge ideas and research, a new generation of scholars and new employees well-educated in modern public management.
In support of this strategy, we:
- offer programs that provide executives (EX-01 and above or similar responsibility) with learning and development opportunities at universities;
- organize events that engage academics on key public management issues;
- support public service leaders actively working with universities;
- catalyze and align academic research to federal public service priorities; and
- undertake projects with universities to advance shared objectives.
