ANZSOG’s mission is to lift the quality of public sector leadership in Australia and Aotearoa-New Zealand, through seeking to:

  • educate public sector leaders to improve their skills, capacity and management, and expose them to the best thinking on public administration.
  • enrich the discipline of public sector leadership through focused research, which has a practical application and meets the needs of our owner governments.
  • connect diverse people, cultures, institutions and jurisdictions – it is a meeting place where public sector leaders come together to be inspired, share, learn and debate accepted practice and new ideas. We also connect senior public service practitioners and academic, and provide a bridge between theory and practice.
  • inspire public servants to make a positive difference to the lives of people in Australia and Aotearoa-New Zealand.

ANZSOG’s Research Insights series supports this mission through disseminating conceptual and practical reflections from our network of expert practitioners and academics, ranging across the span of ANZSOG’s work.
