2016 Biennial Conference

CAPAM 2016 Biennial Conference

Innovation: A Public Service Imperative

Increasingly, the success of public administration and management around the world depends on effective innovation through the timely adoption of new approaches to solving existing problems and meeting emerging societal needs. To explore this issue, from 18-20 August 2016 CAPAM hosted the 11th CAPAM Biennial Conference in Putrajaya, Malaysia  under the theme Innovation: A Public Service Imperative. The conference agenda was designed to offer insightful dialogue, theoretical and practical knowledge exchange and networking to an international audience of senior managers and administrators charged with leading innovation in policies and practices in various jurisdictions across the Commonwealth and beyond. To enrich and complement the three-day conference experience the host government organised a unique and special programme of learning journeys for delegates. The conference program culminated with the presentation of the International Innovations Awards to recognise excellence in public service innovation.
