(p.175) Twelve Senior Executive Service
Building a World-Class Civil Service for Twenty-First Century India


Oxford University Press

In most OECD member countries, public sector reforms include the creation of senior executive cadres. The objective is to select the best candidates that would form a unified and cohesive group capable of handling higher level policy advice, managerial, and professional responsibilities. In line with this goal, several countries have established a leadership cadre known as the Senior Executive Service (SES), whose members are chosen from the academia, the private sector, and serving civil servants. This chapter looks at SESs in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. It also discusses the features of the SESs in these countries, as well as their openness, management, employment arrangements, appointments, performance appraisal, incentives for performance, and training. Finally, it describes the SES in India in the form of the Indian Administrative Service.

Keywords:   Senior Executive Service, United States, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, appropriate induction, performance appraisal, incentives, training, Indian Administrative Service
