The Australia and New Zealand School of Government


About the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG)

ANZSOG is recognised globally as a leading provider of executive-level education for the public sector. ANZSOG was created by government for government, with the active collaboration of its member universities.

ANZSOG delivers

The School has several distinctive features:
  • Postgraduate education incorporating the core disciplines that inform effective public administration.
  • Executive education led by distinguished academics from the world’s leading education providers and senior officials from among ANZSOG’s ten member governments.
  • ‘Safe’ places for high-performing senior practitioners to discuss and draw practical learnings from theory, research and case studies, to inform policy debates and service delivery reform.
  • Supportive environments for senior practitioners across Australia and New Zealand to learn from one another and build lasting professional networks, benefiting governments, communities and citizens.
  • The core of ANZSOG’s ethos is a deep and genuine commitment to good public administration, reflecting the aspirations of and our close relationship to our government owner.

The ANZSOG Case Program

ANZSOG delivers an internationally acclaimed case teaching program with outstanding teachers and a library of topical, stimulating case studies.

Excellence in teaching and learning is central to ANZSOG's mission, and case study-based teaching central to ANZSOG's flagship programs and shorter courses. At ANZSOG, discussion-led teaching draws on recent, cross-jurisdictional experience from two nations that, arguably, moved further and faster than others in public sector reform.

ANZSOG's case studies are all set in the public sector, and cover topics including accountability and governance, co-production, change and innovation, collaboration and partnerships, risk management and regulation, with a number of cases dealing with human resource management, and the management of information technology and knowledge.

Most cases recount events from the past ten to fifteen years. The library includes single- and multi-part cases, many of which can be used for a variety of teaching purposes. ANZSOG cases are concise, lively and engaging, and an active window on current public sector practice in the southern hemisphere. Case development is strongly supported by the participating governments, and case writers have unprecedented access to free and frank recall of recent, often controversial, events.

ANZSOG’s specialist teaching areas are public policy and management in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific region. Our growing online Case Library comprises over 170 case studies covering a wide range of issues, agencies and jurisdictions.

The Case Program has case writers in Melbourne and Wellington who are also available to assist external writers with case development. ANZSOG has delivered practical workshops on case teaching and writing, and has a development strategy to promote the use of interactive teaching in public policy and management education in Australia and New Zealand. The Case Program is always seeking new, well-written teaching cases of up to 4,000 words. We can fund the development of cases by or for academic staff in ANZSOG’s partner institutions, or public servants in member governments.
