Dynamic Governance: Embedding Culture, Capabilities and Change in Singapore


In a world of ever-changing uncertainty and constant political, economical and technological advancement, continuous learning and innovation are key to success — this is what the 100-odd business leaders, civil servants and academics who attended the book launch of Dynamic Governance learnt on July 23, 2007.

Taking a behind-the-scenes look at the civil service, Dynamic Governance by Professors Neo Boon Siong and Geraldine Chen asserts the point that if bureaucratic public institutions can evolve and embed the culture and capabilities that enable continuous learning and change, their contributions to a country's socio-economic progress and prosperity would be enormous. The lessons from their efforts in institutionalizing culture, capabilities and change could provide meaningful and valuable insights for transforming organizations in other contexts.

The event, which took place at the Bukit Timah campus of the National University of Singapore, was graced by Singapore President, S.R. Nathan, who said, "the search for an answer to our transformation can be expected to continue in order to gain a more complete picture."

President Nathan and Professor Neo launched the book by swinging open a giant replica of the book to reveal a bookcase stacked with 477 copies of this title. Among the audience were Singapore's Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean, who oversees the civil service, and Professor Kishore Mahbubani, Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.
