02Here are some ‘hard’ questions for Ministers (be they blue, green or red) to turn on their inner searchlights!

* Is there a documented job description and person specification for the heads of State institutions? Is that the basis of selection?

* What assessment methodologies are used to ensure job-fit and organisational-fit?

* What kind of orientation and job briefing is done when assuming duties?

* What KPIs are set, who and how are they measured and communicated to the public?
