The Budget and public spending
Cuts in the public sector are what everyone has been expecting. How much and how fast is yet to be seen but it is going to be tough.
The challenge brings an opportunity because chopping piecemeal here and there won’t deliver the savings; so public service organisations will have to re-think what is delivered, how it is delivered and the system of institutions that do the delivering.
It’s time to demolish silos, cross boundaries, get over precious professionalism, ignore the usual excuses and do what is right.
