Financial leadership for government' makes some important comparisons. Firstly we looked at how financial leadership in corporations compares with the Whitehall model. We then examined how the UK compares with central government administrations in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the US, in terms of their approach to performance management and how this relates to financial leadership.
The UK’s private sector has huge experience of running large, diversified organisations. Drawing on this experience to strengthen the centre of government has the potential to be a truly world leading initiative.
