Public sector transformation 'could drive growth across Europe'
Major organisational changes in the public sector could prove to be a catalyst for economic growth across the EU, a new study has indicated.
Published by the Government of the Future Centre, the report called for European governments to foster entrepreneuralism within the public sector and pursue collaborative business models.
It suggested that 15 million new jobs could be created in the EU by 2020 - seven per cent more than the current estimated level - if governments harness all the resources at their disposal to boost the economy.
For this to become a reality, a dramatic transformation will be required in the way state organisations deliver services, use technology, interact with citizens and procure goods, the report claimed.
The Government of the Future Centre was founded in 2009 as a collaboration between Accenture, the Lisbon Council and the College of Europe.
Commenting on the report, chief executive of Accenture Pierre Nanterme said public sector leaders must make the most of technology to drive transformation in key areas such as procurement reform and tax compliance.
He added: "Governments across Europe have the opportunity to achieve the mutually beneficial goals of social progress and economic growth."
