Enterprise Risk Management Community of Practice

The August Enterprise Risk Management Community of Practice focused on contestability with a thought-provoking presentation by Gary Sturgess, Adjunct Professor with the Australia and New Zealand School of Government.
The presentation explored origins of the contestability concept, how it applies to the public service sector, and how it might be used to drive improvement in service delivery. A number of interesting case studies including NSW Prisons and NSW Road Maintenance were discussed.
The engaging presentation was largely based on Sturgess’ paper Contestability in Public Services: An Alternative to Outsourcing, available to view and download here.
