The Public Service Transformation Academy is a social enterprise, led by public service consultants RedQuadrant, the Whitehall and Industry Group, and partner organisations who are thought leaders in commissioning. We design and deliver exceptional leadership programmes to build capacity to transform public services.
We have taken over the running of the Cabinet Office’s Commissioning Academy, the government’s acclaimed suite of leadership development programmes for commissioners of public services.
Recorded at the Public Sector Show 2017, Benjamin Taylor talks about the PSTA and his consultancy Red Quadrant. Their mission is to help the public sector build its commissioning and transformation capability so well that consultants are no longer needed.
