The third part focusses on deputy ministers' initial time in the position, a period of critical importance when the newcomer earns the trust of colleagues & contacts and develops a plan of action for the department. Part four reports how deputy ministers themselves define leadership. Part five studies how deputy ministers approach one of their primary tasks: guiding their subordinates. The final section addresses the potential needs of deputy ministers, such as learning, professional development, community affairs, and support during crises & career transitions
The changing profile of federal deputy ministers 1867 to 1988 by Jacques Bourgault( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The deputy minister is one of the most important players in Canada's political system. However, the socio-professional characteristics of deputy ministers are little known, since no systematic study of the group has been done. The purpose of this report is to correct that omission by describing, period by period, the evolution of the profiles of origin, career profiles, and political profiles of the 320 deputy ministers who successfully headed the federal government's departments and central agencies from the first day of Confederation until the end of Prime Minister Mulroney's first term in office

The satisfaction of ministers with the performance of their deputy ministers during the Mulroney governments, 1984-1993 by Jacques Bourgault( )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines in detail the relations between federal ministers and their deputy ministers during the two mandates of the government of Brian Mulroney, based on a series of interviews carried out in 1995 with 23 of the 53 ministers appointed between September 1984 and June 1993. These former ministers were asked to comment on the nature of the working relationships they established with their deputies and chiefs of staff, and the extent to which they may have had a role in the appointment or removal of their deputy ministers. The ministers were provided with a list of criteria for evaluating their deputies' performance and were asked to indicate, according to these criteria, the level of satisfaction with the deputies who served under them. The findings are set in context by examining the traditional roles and duties of ministers, deputies, and chiefs of staff or executive assistants in the Westminster model. Issues explored include ministerial responsibility, the role of a professional career public service in serving the public interest, and the key factors likely to influence the relations between the minister, deputy, and chief of staff. The study is enriched by comparisons with a similar study of Quebec ministers active between 1976 and 1985

Horizontality and public management by Jacques Bourgault( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Horizontal management essentially exists when one or several managers of one or several organizations address a question no longer based exclusively on preoccupations for which they are responsible, but on a wider approach aiming at including interests, resources, and constraints of other stakeholders of this field. This report begins with a review of that concept, its typological formulas, benefits, and difficulties. It then summarizes case studies of horizontal management practices in Quebec selected according to such criteria as duration, diversity, and horizontality. This is followed by a summary of a seminar on horizontal management that discussed difficulties to be overcome, success factors, management skills, leadership abilities, ideal members of project teams, implementation dynamics, group animation & maintenance, accountability, types of horizontal management, life cycles of management structures, and exportability of the concept. The final section draws overall conclusions about the effectiveness of horizontal management
