Public Sector and Social Sector units consist of various important industries like financial, natural resources and infrastructure in different countries. These units aim to achieve a dual objective of working for the benefits of the society as well as competing with other private players to make sustainable profits. Every step taken by this industry has significant impact on the lives of large number of people. It makes the role of these organizations very important in the sustained inclusive development of the economy. With the increased emphasis by private sector on developing core competencies to remain profitable, public sector has shifted focus on optimizing operations and collaborating with private sector to build competencies.
Key trends shaping the industry:
Increasing efficiency through technology: Public sector units have started to implement cutting edge technologies in their work so as to realize maximum benefits from their investments. System complexity is also increasing that will need systematic approach to improve performance.

Customer power: Direct competition from private players has given more choices to customers giving them flexibility to choose better options. To retain them, understanding of customer needs and developing capabilities to fulfill the requirements is important.
Vision for future: Demographic composition of a country changes cyclically over a period of time. Along with it, technological improvements and environmental changes lead to multifarious developments in the needs of the society. Systematic study to understand expected changes can help organizations to be better prepared for future.

The economic, social and political environment globally and in India seems to be continuously evolving. This may have led the government (leaders) to increasingly focus on transforming the manner in which citizen services are being delivered. Practices such as implementing thorough and transparent operations, a sustainable operating model, cost to serve and ensuring customer satisfaction, typically a domain of large corporations, is gradually seeping into government operations, but with an essence of social agenda. The need and resolve to be accountable towards one of the most important stakeholders: citizens, can be driving the government to relook at the entire value of chain of service delivery including, physical and digital infrastructure, health and social services and defence and public safety.
