Abstract

Many areas of the public sector face financial constraints and/or increases in demand that are outstripping available resources. At the same time policy makers and the public are impatient for responses and results. While still calling for improvements and new initiatives, they may not be prepared to wait for multi-year transformation programmes to deliver results, even if these were cost effective and likely to succeed.

This 200 page A4 size report sets out a practical route to transforming public services, building high performance organisations and quickly achieving multiple objectives. The approach can avoid traditional trade-offs and benefits people and organisations.
