Professional Capabilities for Public Servants

IPAA has recently been exploring professional standards and their potential role across the public services of Australia. In this collection, drawn from the archives of the journal, we see that the issue of professional capabilities has been long debated in the pages of the journal. This begins with an exploration of the function of the administrator in the 1940s, moves through a range of perspectives on training, requirements for a successful administrator, the emergence of the leadership debate, and on to more recent debates on the capacity of the public service more broadly.
