In many reform efforts, leadership is an important element in ensuring that the plan succeeds. In this respect, dynamic reforms which are continuing to take place in the Malaysian public service owe much to the leadership provided by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. This can be seen from the numerous programmes he has introduced which have generally been well received by both the public and private sectors. The objective of this article is to focus on Dr. Mahathir Mohamad as a prime mover or catalyst in the implementation of the administrative reform efforts in Malaysia. It highlights the leadership dynamism and forward-orientation of Dr. Mahathir thus far, in playing a central role to ensure the success of the reform movement.
