Last autumn, I was part of a small team of volunteers from the Department for Education (DfE), HMRC and the Department for International Development (DfID) who spent some time working with the Systems Unit in the Cabinet Office. We wanted to explore what systems leadership meant.
Ben Coates is a deputy director at the Department for Education (DfE).
