Delivering Great Policy

An event suitable for all APS staff interested in policy delivery.

How do we take policy advice from good to great?

We need to be able to tackle complex problems in a rapidly changing world. Delivering great policy is a critical part of this.

IPAA and the APS team Delivering Great Policy invite you to attend the cross agency’s interactive launch event, showcasing some of the creative and practical tools the APS can use to move policy advice from good to great. At this event you will:

  • hear from a thought-provoking panel, including several Departmental Secretaries;
  • explore and experience great policy practices already used across the APS; and
  • access new resources and contacts to enable the implementation of a high performing policy system.

If you are a policy leader, adviser, developer or implementer, this is the event for you.
