    8th – 12th June 2015, London, UK

The ICPS 8th Annual Public Administration Reform Symposium will focus on the theme “Creating an Open, Efficient, and Digital Public Service”. For those wishing to complete the five-day Professional Certificate, this will incorporate the high-level Symposium and three subsequent days of intensive training. Delegates can opt to attend the Symposium on its own, or to attend the full five-day event.

The Symposium

Public Sector Leaders around the world are having to address the challenge of delivering responsive high quality services, against the backdrop of increasing financial pressures and constraints. Alongside the need to create greater efficiency and cost-savings, people are demanding more openness and accountability in Government, and greater civic participation. Public Services are also being delivered in a period of rapid technological development, which provides both opportunities and challenges for digital delivery and e-Government.

This 8th Annual International Public Administration Reform Symposium will look at current best practice, the latest thinking and trends from around the world.

Areas to be discussed will include:

  • Creating an efficient and effective Public Service
  • Delivering higher quality services amidst financial constraints;
  • Creating a digital Public Service
  • Effective regulation, procurement and major project delivery
  • Creating a more transparent and accountable Public Service
  • Fighting corruption
  • Approaches to greater civic participation
  • The impact and opportunities of social media for Public Administration
  • Citizen-centric and personalised service delivery

As always, there will be a wide range of speakers and many opportunities for delegates to network, discuss, listen and put forward their own views and experiences for others to hear and learn from over the course of the event.

The Professional Certificate

While the Symposium will look at some of the most pressing issues facing those involved in Public Administration Reform, the “Professional Certificate in the Models of Public Service Delivery” will then go into more depth and critically evaluate different models and providers for service delivery and funding. Drawing lessons from international case studies, participants will analyse both successes and failures in models of public service delivery and consider how to influence and change policy. Participants will also evaluate new, innovative models and examine practical examples as to how they would be implemented.

The programme is designed to build upon the issues raised throughout the symposium through discussions with peers and subject specialists. Participants who attend the full five-day programme will be eligible to attain the Chartered Management Institute Professional Certificate in Management and Leadership.
