I spent Thursday morning in Downing Street at the launch of Power in People’s Hands: learning from the worlds best public services.

The report is a good catalogue of interesting practice from the around the world.

Most disappointing was their strategy for generating innovation in our own public services which amounted to: training for civil servants, showcasing bright ideas through an committee of the great and the good and assess departments on innovation as part of their Capability Review. This is not really up to the monumental challenge we have in the public sector.

The report is here.
