Future public sector reform needs to differentiate between reform that does the wrong thing in the right way and reform that does the right thing. To consider what the right thing is, we need to look at the big picture and ask: does Australia have the forms of governance it needs to be effectively governed? This chapter takes a step back and presents a systemic perspective on:
• How some situations that need to be governed are, or could be, framed,
• The systemic failings that are built into our current governance arrangements,
• Some of the findings and recommendations of the recent Moran Review, and
• Recommendations for improving public sector reform.
