We believe that systems thinking should be at the heart of policy design and delivery. We think it can generate policy that is easier to deliver, better value for money and improved outcomes for the public.This requires both strong leadership and strong systems leadership.
We are a multi-disciplinary team committed to developing and championing the Strategic Framework and inspiring others across the public service to champion it too.
We are motivated by the desire to deliver better outcomes for citizens by helping others to understand and practice leadership in systems.
We want to help create the right environment and architecture to incentivise world-class cross-cutting policy design and delivery.
Our team is based in Cabinet Office but this work is going on across the whole of the public sector.
A system is a group of individuals or an organisation working together or interacting as part of a network. We believe that everyone in the public sector should be a systems leader.
That means being a leader in a system, rather than a leader of a system. We share ten tips to help you embrace your inner systems leader.
Systems leadership is not just for leaders. It’s about us all reimagining the way we think about government, refusing to let organisational boundaries hold us back from delivering results for citizens.
We want to help people across the public sector apply systems thinking to complex problems.
So if you want to find out more about how this approach can improve people’s lives, subscribe to our blog.
