Public servants have increasingly been facing the ‘crisisification’ of public administration – a cumulation of more frequent, large-scale and protracted acute emergencies that co-exist with ‘creeping’ (slow-moving, but potentially highly impactful) wicked problems.

In an era of ‘polycrisis’ and consequent crisisfication of government agendas, mentalities and practices, senior leaders are being expected to deal with both acute and creeping crises more regularly. How can these leaders adapt their systems and organisations to respond strategically, purposefully and wisely to a climate of quasi permanent threat, uncertainty, turbulence and requisite ad-hocery?

Paul 't Hart is a Professor of Public Administration at Utrecht University and Associate Dean of the Netherlands School of Public Administration in The Hague. He resumed both positions in mid-2011, after spending five years as Professor of Political Science at the Australian National University. Paul’s research, teaching and consulting covers political and public sector leadership, policy evaluation, public accountability and crisis management.
