Richard Dobbs and Jonathan Dimson, senior partners at McKinsey & Company, invited chief executives for a small group discussion, drinks and dinner at Villandry St James's, London.
As leaders of public sector organisations, many, if not all, of you are facing the challenge of needing to do more with less. This is an experience shared by many of your colleagues around the world. Higher costs and rising demand have driven rapid increases in spending on core public services such as education, healthcare, and transport - while countries must grapple with complex challenges such as population aging, economic inequality, protracted security concerns and citizens’ rising expectations of public sector services. Public bodies need a way to deliver better outcomes - and a better experience for citizens - at a sustainable cost.
The McKinsey Centre for Government published a major report, Government productivity: Unlocking the $3.5 trillion opportunity. The report drew on extensive research, interviews and case studies to offer examples of dramatic productivity improvements in health, education, public safety and other sectors around the world. It argued that enhanced functional capabilities across public bodies are key to improved productivity and offers practical insights into how to achieve transformation.
At this small group event, Tera Allas, senior fellow of the McKinsey Centre for Government spoke about the findings of the report and the insights that the research offered for leaders of public sector bodies.
