First published in 1998, this study formed the basis of a report submitted to the Australian Commonwealth Government as an independent piece of research. With the onset of large organizations, leadership has become increasingly important, being viewed both from the perspective of action and from the influence of context. The authors examine leadership in the Australian public sector first through an overview of leadership, followed by a survey of the APS including the culture of the APS and recommendations for improvements.
