‘Think like entrepreneurs’ urges RSA

DIGEST: Senior officers must cultivate ”strong personal relationships” with the leaders of other parts of the public sector to underpin the “innovative partnerships” required to weather austerity, a report by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce has said.

Its report, Transforming Together: Leading for People and Place, examined partnerships set up by six local authorities to identify best practice. The authors called on council leaders to embrace an entrepreneurial spirit, and commended Cheshire East Council for creating ‘emotionally healthy schools’ through working with the NHS.

RSA chief executive Matthew Taylor (pictured) said: ”Relationships and innovation are key to ensuring that local public services are delivered in a way that is both relevant and effective. These are difficult times for many local public services but, in highlighting the good work that is being done in some of the most innovative local areas, this report offers support for council senior managers and other public sector leaders in how they might achieve even more.”
