Competency Management in the Context of Public Management Reform

Civil servants are experiencing great pressures emanating from increasing global integration – economic, political, so-cial and cultural. New technology, new ways of organizing work, new means of delivering services and an increasing reliance on temporary employment have redefined the nature of public service.
