12. Build strategic planning capability

Consultation: Our Public Service 2020

We aim to significantly strengthen how well we define our strategy direction, make decisions and allocate resources. We will strive to overcome any barriers to putting these plans in place.
We want to further develop the skills that allow us to think strategically so we can:
  • plan for challenges and opportunities facing the Public Service;
  • make sure long-term planning is effective; and
  • make sure our plans are flexible enough to adjust to new and unexpected developments.
