The post “How to Stifle Creativity In Local Government” over at is right on the money.

I’d suggest some additions:

  • when presented with a suggestion, tell them to find out how the private sector would do it, and
  • prescribe methodologies to be followed and formal tools to be employed.

Given my experiences, particularly over the last eighteen months, I’d been considering writing a very similar article for this site.

No need now, thanks!

Now what to do with my saved time?

    Glad we could help! In the time we’ve saved you, how about putting together the PID for this site, along with a comms strategy and updating the RAG status on your risk register?

    Send it over to us and we’ll try to take a look at it all as soon as we can… 😉
