Review of Country Strategies
Abstract:This chapter reviews the different strategies that can be undertaken by countries in response to the challenges defined in the previous chapters. It notes the importance of a holistic approach, with the relevant government organisations and the different levels of government working together to co‐ordinate the implementation of the chosen strategies. The review of the nine case studies reveals the necessity for more proactive strategies based on: reviewing the demographic profile of the public service workforce to assess potential capacity gaps and financial difficulties; reviewing the longer term capacity challenges that may emerge as service demands change and fiscal latitude becomes more restricted; and examining the room for manoeuvre created by changes to the wider workforce.
