Next Steps

Continue the ‘good governance work’ as a one to three year Privy Council Office (PCO) project led by an experienced senior manager as a full time task, ensuring that the next phase:

  1. Comprises clear deliverables, milestones, monitoring of progress and results at least twice yearly at a very senior level in PCO. Starting with the delivery of a proposed action plan within three months that builds on the reformcraft project.

  2. Links explicitly both to federal decision makers through existing mechanisms (deputy minister retreats; transition planning; ministerial planning) and to key existing governance initiatives (e.g. the Canadian Centre for Management Development’s (CCMD’s) research agenda and the ‘Renewing Governance Project’).

  3. Demonstrates openness, inclusiveness and transparency (building on the network created as part of the original reformcraft work) and ensures institutional memory through the involvement of future public service leaders.

  4. Explicitly learns from what is happening (formally and informally) in the European Union (EU) perhaps the fastest developing area of the evolution of governance in democratic societies in the world, (e.g. through extended visits to the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) in Maastricht).
