World Public Sector Report 2005 - Unlocking the Human Potential for Public Sector Performance

World Public Sector Report 2005 - Unlocking the Human Potential for Public Sector Performance

Ratings: (0)|Views: 118|Likes:
As recommended by the UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration (UNCEPA), the third World Public Sector Report will be published in 2005, with a particular thematic focus on human resources management (HRM). More specifically, the report will explore how the human potential can be unlocked to enhance public sector performance.

UNCEPA, at its Second Meeting in April 2003, stressed that human resources capacity was critical to the quality of public administration. The increasing complexity of both policy-making and administrative processes, as well as the erosion of human resources capacity to carry out those functions, are making it difficult for many Member States to implement national goals and strategies to reduce poverty and to promote sustainable human development, as emphasized in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Foreword
There has been a rediscovery in recent years of the critical role played by human resources inimproving and sustaining institutional effectiveness and development performance. It is thisrealization that has provided the impetus to focus the
World Public Sector Report 
on thisimportant topic. Governments increasingly look at public administration reform as a key instrument to achieve important development goals and to catalyse wider transformation insociety. At the same time, public administration will not be able to play this role effectively  without competent and dedicated public servants. This means that the management of human resources has moved to the fore as a central concern of leaders in the public service.This
World Public Sector Report 
surveys some of the major trends, models andrelated visions that have influenced human resource management practices around the worldin recent decades. It highlights the diversity of values and doctrines that have guided thestrengthening of HRM systems in the public sector. The present report advocates that futurereform in this area involves striking a balance between three broad models or schools in pub-lic administration:
traditional public administration; public management,
including
new public management 
(NPM); and an emerging model of 
responsive governance.
 An important objectiveof the report is to discuss how the best attributes of these three models can be effectively har-nessed to address contemporary challenges facing HRM in the public sector worldwide.The theme
“Unlocking the Human Potential for Public Sector Performance” 
is par-ticularly pertinent at this point in time when the interconnectedness of professional manage-ment of human resources and government effectiveness has become very evident to leadersand managers in the public service in both developed and developing countries. The reporthopes to further stimulate debate, particularly in developing countries and transitioneconomies, on how to manage human resources in the public sector more effectively forenhanced development performance and social progress.The report is also intended to serve as a substantive input into a number of upcoming intergovernmental meetings where the role of public administration in facilitatingthe realization of the Millennium Development Goals will be on the agenda. It is similarly expected that the report will contribute to discussions at a Special Session of the General Assembly in 2006, which will review progress in revitalizing public administration during thepast ten years, or since the adoption of the landmark General Assembly resolution 50/225 onpublic administration and development.
