This blog is maintained by Ingrid Koehler (mostly). It was started when I worked within the IDeA’s Strategy and Development Unit. Adrian Barker is another regular contributor. We are using it to stimulate a conversation about local government and public sector policy, focusing particularly on improvement and innovation. Adrian works on areas of local government improvement policy. Ingrid is currently working with the Knowledge Hub project and particularly focuses on the use of social media and open data for better local public services.
This blog complements the LG Improvement and Development sponsored communities of practice. In particular:
- Policy and Performance
- Social Media and Online Collaboration
- Local Open Data
- Knowledge Hub
- Efficiency Exchange
