The post “How to Stifle Creativity In Local Government” over at http://welovelocalgovernment.wordpress.com 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?
