Commonwealth member governments have been taking part in a unique mapping exercise, identifying the actual changes which have been made in some key areas of public service management. PERSONNEL RECORDS: A STRATEGIC RESOURCE FOR PUBLIC SECTOR MANAGEMENT is part of the Public Service Thematic Series which envisages setting out the results of research projects, in selected countries or group of countries, to provide real insight into the real managerial and structural changes within selected areas of public service.

In providing some firm ground on which those public servants, who are faced with the challenge of public service reform, can stand while assessing the options available, the Public Service Thematic Series marks a milestone in the debate concerning specific areas of management of the public service.
