Over the last decade, there has been renewed interest in leadership as a means to achieve organisational performance, across both public and private sectors (e.g. Hartley and Allison 2000; Storey 2004; Parry and Bryman 2006). In the public sector, leadership has been almost a mantra but without clear evidence (Hartley 2010). There are three issues which need addressing in order to understand whether and how leadership contributes to public service improvement. First, leadership is a multifaceted concept and so it is important to be clear about the term. Second, the evidence of a relationship between leadership and organisational performance is more often asserted than demonstrated and so evidence is needed which examines both leadership and improvement. Third, there is a need to better understand the dynamics of how leadership may have an impact on performance (as well as how performance may influence perceptions of leadership).
