I'm hearing interesting comments on Kevin Rudd's address
Equipping the Australian public service for Australia's future challenges. They range from about time, to not again.
Here is the KPMG Report

raises questions around the appropriateness of methodology. No criticism intended, but how do we know it is the right one? It might be, but what if it is not?
I guess the question is that on the one hand the Government and Public Sector have risen to the challenges of the global financial crisis - a crisis that largely emanated from parts the private sector - and, on the other, the public sector is being asked to lift it's game.
I don't know about anyone else, but I have mixed feelings here. 100% right that the public sector improve, but what about the private sector? In particular, what about large national and multinational corporations?
What do you think?
