My Gov 2.0 Hero: Dr. Nicholas Gruen

Submitted by Steve Davies (@ozloop), Australian Public Service and founder, OZloop.

Dr. Nicholas Gruen

I’d like to nominate Dr. Nicholas Gruen (@nicholasgruen) for the stunning work he carried out on our Gov 2.0 Taskforce Report (see also Government response).

Nicholas has set a brilliant leadership example to us all not just with the report, but by the manner in which the Taskforce went about its work (

Under Nicholas’ leadership, the Taskforce not only did a brilliant job, they set an example to many of us who work in the Australian Public Service and, I believe, around the world.

The report also has a marked influence on the work of the APS Reform group of our Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (Blueprint for the Reform of Australian Government Administration).

Apart from the great work and setting an example, Nicholas’ work, along with that of the rest of the Taskforce, has left a lasting legacy. And, of course, inspiration.
