The public sector isn’t known for it’s rapid delivery of, well, anything. This unfair perception was turned on its head during the pandemic when public services demonstrated what we can really do. We delivered financial support to businesses, food to residents, and we tested and traced millions of people. We did all this pretty flipping quickly.

We often hear about co-production – it is often talked about, but less often done well.

Organisations often know that the idea of people shaping services is the path to long term change, but are not always sure how to go about it. They may try to adopt semi-collaborative approaches, but fall short of true co-production. Or they may even be too fearful to try at all!

Is change management an art or a science?

In the varied and diverse field of change management, change practitioners have a wide range of skills and responsibilities that drive organisations towards successful, sustainable change. From recent attendance at an event about Scientific Mindset in Organisational Change I was inspired by Alex Boulting to reflect on where our varied discipline sits on the dichotomy between art and science.

What's the point of being human?

First published on the 24th of February in The MJ. Purpose and humanity - the meaning of life? The reason you get out of bed in the morning? Or don’t? Local authorities can’t (and often don’t) resist the urge to put people at the heart of their strap lines – but are they really at the heart of our post-pandemic plans? We’ve researched local government change over the last 18-months and we’ve found six key ingredients needed to drive successful transformation.
