Leaders in public service research and education

The Public Service Research Group (PSRG) performs timely, high-quality and reliable research into public policy implementation and draws on this to deliver world-class executive education and professional development. We partner with organisation clients to produce new insights into effective public service implementation and evaluation to solve real-world problems. When we partner with the public service, including not-for-profits, the public sector and private organisations, we work with them to understand their needs, develop a tailored solution, and build up the organisational and individual capacity for problem solving.


About us
