EPISODE #79 | Time, trust, turf: Building effective partnerships
Partnerships are crucial for achieving meaningful change, whether that’s between organisations, people, or communities. Wanting to leverage this potential, advancing partnerships has come into sharp focus for the public sector through the APS reform agenda.
However, developing these partnerships can be challenging – the more partners are involved, the more they have to grapple with different interests and challenges. Common purpose, diversity in perspectives, and effective governance are key to overcoming those barriers.
In this episode, we discuss building strong partnerships within and outside the Australian public sector with Professor Janine O’Flynn, director at the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy, and David Pullen, assistant secretary, Cabinet Resilience and Crisis Management Division at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
