Executive Services Organization Design Tool (14 slides)
Determine how the executive services function should be organized within your government agency and the delineation of executive services tasks at each level of the agency.
Executive services delineation of functions
The executive services function typically entails: coordinating requests for quick turnaround information at senior levels of the organization; arranging meetings with senior officials and other stakeholders; coordinating horizontal and sensitive issues, briefings and organizational responses; liaison with external stakeholders; and secretariat support to management committees.
A key consideration is the delineation of executive services activities between the executive services function at the corporate level, branch/program/regional office executive services, and branch/program/regional office program managers.
