Seeing this a lot:
Christine is perfect to run that commission that should be shut down.

She will do fine. :thumbsup:

The question is how will the commission do?


:hmmm: Yeah, it has long been asked what is the point of it when the major parties cover that ground anyway.

She can't have been much of a manager to get such a poor public profile. Senior public servants are political animals and in politics perceptions are real.

Even if the devils advocate argument is correct and her decisions were "efficient" and "met targets" she was shit at expectation management and playing the PR game. Like it or not people in those kinds of positions need to be good at the PR game. Personally I don't care either way.

This new appointment is an enough rope scenario. The question is do national want to hang Christine or the commission or both?

So you are suggesting that CEO's of govt dept should have PR people looking after their personal image ? - wouldnt that be an example of wastage?

but yes, sums up rankin pretty well, she had an epic fail in the PR game. A very good and justified reason for a manger in govt employ to be dismissed.

They don't need PR people, but they do need to be very aware of the image they are projecting. All senior management are in politics - publicly listed companies are no different to government departments in this respect. The only place you might be able to avoid it is with private companies, but even then only in limited circumstances.
