The Centre for Innovation and Structural Change at NUI Galway was delighted to host the Leadership in the Public Service Conference on Friday 8th April 2011 in Aras Moyola, NUI Galway.

Dr. Alma McCarthy (CISC and Management Discipline, NUI Galway) led a leadership capability study at senior management level in the Irish Civil Service between May and August 2010. Over 140 senior managers (Secretaries General, Assistant Secretaries General and Principal Officers) participated in the study from 12 Government Departments and the Office of the Revenue Commissioners. In total, over 1,200 leadership surveys were completed by focal individuals (the senior managers), their managers, peers and direct reports representing the most extensive study of its kind to-date in Ireland.

The Leadership in the Public Service Conference at NUI Galway showcased the findings of the research project and launched a comprehensive research report on the study.
