INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF THE APS

Reason Group is pleased to take this opportunity to contribute to the public submissions as part of the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service (APS). This paper captures some of our perspectives based on our experience of the challenges at hand, and the capability, culture and operating model needed for a world class APS in 2030 and beyond. 

We want Australia to be a place where coming generations will want to stay, live and work. We believe that having a world-class public service sparking world-class community and private sector innovation is a crucial capability for the future of our country. 

Australia has many areas of competitive strength, such as energy resources, medical and mining related technologies. There are also significant opportunities in emerging sectors like FinTech and precision agriculture. However, to remain a lucky-country, we must manage smarter. We must engage more purposefully with the community and business to create more locally grown solutions that drive cross sectoral growth.
