How can public sector organisations transform themselves while ensuring that the business of government continues unabated? This is just one of the questions tackled in the latest CPI Podcast.
Our guest is Agnès Audier, whose career has taken her to the top of the public and private sectors in France. A physicist by training, she began her career as a product engineer for a chemistry group and later a top strategist with Vivendi, the Paris-based global Advertising and Entertainment Company. In government, meanwhile, she has served as technical advisor to Simone Veil, the then Minister of Social Affairs and Health, as well as as principal private secretary to Jean-Pierre Raffarin, who at the time was minister of small business, trade and craft industries.
Here, she sits down with me to discuss how governments can best embark on transformation projects, whether it is harder for the public sector than in business and much more.
