The lasting debate about political stability in Israel tends to overshadow the crucial question of its public administration effectiveness. This field attracts growing attention in OECD countries: many of which seek to improve performance; increase transparency; and pioneer collaborative methods of decision-making. In Israel, reliable, on-time and well-presented data on performance are still a rare commodity. In addition, mounting pressure for accountability and lack of proper training restricts the capacity of government to deliver. This chapter explores the recent developments in policy planning and policy analysis at the Israeli central government. It elaborates on the “soft power” approach taken by the Prime Minister’s Office in reforming the way ministries track and report their performance. Whereas the recent efforts were tremendously successful in delivering outputs, their outcomes are still questionable. Government has more plans, but it also needs data and incentives to increase its effectiveness.
