Today’s world is increasingly dominated by individual material interests and financial values. In such a context, it is easy to lose sight of the important collective interests and public values that government has a special responsibility to protect, advance, and secure – even easier to miss the important contribution that public leaders and managers make to the achievement of these important social purposes. This program seeks to highlight the importance of this work, and to help public leaders and managers improve their performance in helping their societies define and create public value.

Led by Harvard Professor Mark Moore, Creating Public Value will strengthen your capacities to develop and use a “restless, value-seeking imagination” to give meaning and impact to your work – to help you imagine, test, adapt, and actively pursue a public value proposition that uses the distinctive assets of government to help create societies that are not only prosperous, but also sociable and just.
