Scotland's National Strategy for Economic Transformation: summary

This summary version of the strategy highlights the main priorities and actions we will take forward in the next decade to achieve our vision of a wellbeing economy.

6. A Culture of Delivery

Success demands a culture of delivery and accountability in which objectives are shared and responsibilities are clearly allocated and accepted across the public, private and third sector.

Through our three new projects we will:

  • strengthen accountability and transparency;
  • transform the way support is delivered to people and businesses across Scotland; and
  • measure success.

Key actions we will implement:

  • Restructure existing boards to create a National Strategy for Economic Transformation Board co-chaired by the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Economy and a figure from the private sector, to include worker representatives.
  • Introduce a common accountability framework with delivery partners with senior named leaders both inside and outside the Scottish Government.
  • Provide multi-year budgets through Resource Spending Reviews.
  • Establish a programme to radically transform the way in which the public sector in Scotland provides support for workers and businesses.
  • Publish an annual progress report to enhance public accountability.
  • Publish a wellbeing economy monitor, to build on Scotland's leading work on integrating wellbeing into its measurements and policy development.
  • Ensure a consistent approach to evaluation to drive continuous improvement and greater understanding of the return on investment.
