Summary: There is ample evidence of existing gaps in Australian leadership capabilities. However, as demonstrated by the most recent studies, it is also clear that a series of insightful diagnostic initiatives didn't succeed in filling these gaps. This might be linked to a fragmentation of the recommendations derived from these studies and to a lack of continuity in implementing these recommendations. One of the key contributions of the ALCS will thus be to ensure continuity in measurement, improvement efforts and monitoring of the impact of such efforts.
