Protracted budget cuts and rising demand for public services present a complex set of challenges to public service provision with many requiring urgent attention. In 2013, the Scottish Parliament 2013 embarked on a 16 month investigation into public service transformation PST. They discovered that the process seemed uncoordinated and ineffective and thereby unable to deliver the required changes. Therefore, there is need to identify key factors that could impede or facilitate the process of PST in Scotland. This is necessary because between 2010 and 2015, there has been scant academic literature specifically addressing this area. In order to reduce bias, increase internal validity and ensure methodical rigour, this paper aims to identify these factors based on a systematic literature review and in the process add to theoretical development and best practice in Scotlands public sector.
