Public servants, are you ready for a brave new world?

Despite the doom and gloom, some see a bright future for public servants -- if they're prepared to embrace new ways of doing business.

There’s plenty of concern for the future of public servants as jobs are cut. But some experts see grounds for optimism for bureaucrats who are prepared to innovate, break down barriers, and embrace technological change.

    Aldous Huxley in his Brave New World says:

    ‘Never will there will so few men that control so many’

    That is the Brave New World of our public service.

    Our public service is in political, cultural and leadership crisis.

    This has been the culmination of a decade or two of driving technically competent and emotionally savvy leaders out of the public service.

    It is now the cronies that are being entrusted with the responsibility of driving out what remains of dedicated public servants.

    These cronies don’t understand the fundamental tenets of innovation or technology. Check out Sedgwick’s new circular.

    The public service does not promote or harness talent.

    The prognosis is a very sad one at best.
