Development Boards work across the Public Service system to support the development of senior leaders. Development Boards focus on providing leaders with cross-agency development opportunities and address system-wide leadership capability needs within their functional area or region.
There are three functional boards: Corporate, Operations and Policy; one regional board for Auckland, and an overarching System Development Board. The System Development Board ensures consistency across all boards and sets the combined areas of focus for the Boards.

Benefits of Te Pae Aramahi | Development Boards
Development Boards provide Public Service leaders with cross-agency development opportunities, supporting agencies and their leaders to access development from anywhere across the system. Development in this context is focused on helping leaders to:
- gain independent career and development advice from a chief executive or deputy chief executive
- receive valuable developmental feedback from a Development Board.
- become more visible which can open up opportunities for future development.
- access mentoring, coaching, shadowing or other workplace opportunities.
Leaders are responsible for their own development and the primary development relationship for leaders is with their agency and manager. Development Boards are a system approach to ensure the Public Service has the capability it needs.
Development Boards are not able to place leaders directly into contestable processes for permanent roles and secondments.
