Leadership commitment is necessary Must understand the underlying political system to make sense of or improve public staff management: To make a difference, an understanding of politics is every bit as important as an understanding of HRM itself. Governments are well advised to start reform from current situation and adjust gradually to best practice requirements rather than start from scratch and try to build a new system.
