The results-driven work ethics of Michael Barber, a top British political adviser during the Blair era is making its way into the administration of the Trudeau government. Deliverology, a term that has been coined with this approach of delivering and producing results has generated a lot of interest with the current government.
According to the CBC, Sir Michael Barber who has attended the cabinet’s three retreats so far and has also made a trip to Ottawa “preaches establishing “delivery units,” setting priorities, measuring outcomes and methodically reviewing progress — a process that, ideally, drives a government to fulfil its commitments and produces meaningful results for the public.”
The way to ensure that this is achieved a plan is in place to have a bi-weekly meeting with the prime minister, relevant ministers, senior advisers and Matthew Mendelsohn, who has been placed in charge of managing the government’s “results and delivery” efforts, to discuss “how policy is being implemented and what results are being achieved.”
With this approach from the Trudeau government, deliverology has become a hot topic that is being discussed in the public sector.
To help senior executives get a better understanding of this topic and to see with the practice of deliverology how performance, measurement, and reporting can be improved, Canadian Government Executive is bringing a team of thought leaders from inside and outside the federal government who will discuss how they have adapted to new priorities while assuming their legal and traditional responsibilities.
Speakers include, Tony Dean, a former Ontario civil servant who was Secretary of the Cabinet, Head of the Ontario Public Service, and the Clerk of the Executive Council from 2002 to 2008, Tom Rosser who is the Senior Deputy Minister, Strategic Policy for Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Lou Di Gironimo, General Manager of Toronto Water, to name a few.
