The Circumstances

Leadership lessons 

Many public sector agencies work in concert to deliver outcomes. Adjustments to capacity in one part of the ecosystem can cause disruptions and inefficiencies across the sector. To achieve sustainable savings, it is useful to consider the bigger picture, and involve the other stakeholders in the ecosystem.
