Monitoring the Implementation of the Public Service Act's Principles and Values

A key plank of the IPANZ strategy is to “ensure the espoused aspiration to demonstrate public sector ethics, values and principles is fully reflected in the lived experience of public sector professionals”.

The day-to-day demonstration of these principles in action will be achieved by steady culture change, support, inspiration and modelling by everyone.

However, progress will presumably need to be tracked and monitored for learning and improvement to take place. We were therefore interested to talk with Simon Chapple of Victoria University about his ideas on potential ways of monitoring implementation over time.
