In case you haven’t seen this, it sets out the reform agenda for public services and in my opinion it is a step in the right direction. but the real test will be in the implementation of course.
I focused my reading initially on sections “Strategic Government” and “Empowering Local Communities”
My only concern about this is it requires a fundamental shift in the way we think and plan services. Once size fits all approach won’t work and we need to be able to encourage and push the changes through without reducing the opportunities for local innovation and community involvement.
I believe we also need a competency framework moving forward to ensure , as there is a huge gap in understanding around some of the opportunities and service impacts.
In the meantime I will continue to push change here
