Ensuring the leadership of the new municipalism

Ensuring the leadership of the new municipalism

The local government world has undergone, and continues to undergo, fundamental change as a result of the impact of austerity and the multiple policy crises society faces. Chief officers, who sit just below chief executives, have to navigate this often-complex world; implementing the vision of council leaders, elected members and corporate management teams.

As a result of these ongoing changes, APSE’s latest report examines how chief officers in local authorities are experiencing the shifting landscape of local government and how they are making sense of its leadership challenges. Being a relatively neglected corps of actors in local government, this report aims to throw light on an important role; one that is often charged with driving forward transformational change and exercising local stewardship.

As we move towards a new municipalism that goes beyond efficiency, this report offers recommendations on how to achieve the necessary mindset and skillset required to embrace innovation and commercialisation.
