As government budgets shrink and pressures on public services mount, the words ‘performance’ and ‘productivity’ are frequently heard. But do any of us find addressing problems of performance and productivity in our workplaces easy? And what do we mean by high performance at an individual, agency and whole of system level?

The Commission invites you to engage with this outstanding speaker, as we grapple with how we change the conversation around performance, work out our priorities, and make the connection between motivation, management and a high performing public sector.

Deborah Blackman is a Professor in public sector management strategy at the University of New South Wales, Canberra.

Her recent project, developing a new Performance Management Framework for the Australian Public Service Commission, focuses on achieving high performance. This project has led to the creation of a new diagnostic process which links performance management, change and performance improvement.

Deborah has published extensively across a range of international journals including Management Learning, the Journal of Knowledge Management and Management Decision, and recently co-edited a book on Crossing Boundaries in Public Management and Policy: the international experience, with Professor Janine O’Flynn and Professor John Halligan.
