Australia was only one of the many countries to embark on a major program of management reform during the 1980s. A particular feature of the Australian approach was the attention given to the balance between aggregate budgetary control and performance at the organisational and program level. This emphasis reflected a perception that many overseas reform efforts had failed because they emphasised one of these elements, often at the expense of the other. Creating and maintaining an aggregate control framework which encourages improved organisational and program performance remains an ongoing challenge.
