Occasional Paper No 25. As part of the larger scope of work commissioned by Public Service Chief Executives on "Developing our Future Leaders", as well as the Review of the Centre work, the State Services Commission throughout 2001 undertook to provide the Commissioner and Chief Executives with an assessment of processes for developing senior managers across the New Zealand Public Service.
The first phase of this exercise was to take stock of current practice in the application of competencies and frameworks for developing managers. All Public Service departments were interviewed using a structured template. This report presents a summary outcome of the research for the participating organisations.
