The Department has published its latest Capability Review and action plan. The review, which is based on a self assessment, is intended to measure the Department’s capability in three broad areas:

  • leadership
  • strategy
  • delivery

The action plan will address the issues identified in the review and to improve the Department’s capability. Although the actions will support the delivery of our transformation and transition, they do not represent all the actions needed to deliver change.

Both the review and action plan have been subject to scrutiny by the Cabinet Office and discusion between the Head of the Civil Service, Sir Bob Kerslake, and Departmental representation from Una O’Brien, Sir David Nicholson and Catherine Bell.
