This Small versus Big Government masterclass discusses the role of government and how it creates public value.</p> <p>Over many decades, the face of the Australian public sector has reshaped in line with major waves of reform. Early reform questioned the role of Government and how it was pushed to introduce private sector and market notions to public sector administration. This paradigm focused on efficiency, downsizing and market-led approaches such as user pay, privatisation, public private partnerships, presenting government as standing in the way of ‘business’ – thus the promotion of a paradigm of ‘small government’. Conversely, ‘big’ government describes a paradigm of excessively bureaucratic and bloated government ecosystems, over-reaching in involvement in matters of public administration.</p> <p>A new wave of thinking is moving from the debate over big and small and considering more importantly the role of Government in creating enduring public value.</p> <h4 id="participant-benefits">Participant benefits</h4> <p>This MasterCraft Series event will explore the narrative on the role of government within the economy - including notions of ‘big’ and ‘small’ government. Participants will learn the concept of public value and how it provides a way to promote more meaningful public sector reform and innovation.</p> <h4 id="inclusions">Inclusions</h4> <ul> <li>1 x 1.5 hour facilitated virtual classroom session (see 'session details' in the below schedule for specific dates and start/finish times)</li> </ul> <hr /> <h5 id="this-program-aligns-with-the-working-in-government-craft-at-the-practitioner-level">This program aligns with the Working in Government Craft at the Practitioner Level.</h5> <p>Working in Government is a willingness to serve and the ability to apply a deep understanding of the context in which the APS operates.
