Senior executive leadership capability (SELC) framework

The Senior Executive Leadership Capability Framework seeks to establish a shared understanding of the critical success factors for performance in APS leadership roles. The Framework identifies the five core criteria for high performance by senior executives. Each of the criteria heads a group of inter-related capabilities. The Framework does not describe the functions or responsibilities of particular senior executive roles. In 2001 the SELC Framework was unanimously endorsed by Portfolio Secretaries as relevant and valid for the SES.
