Thursday’s post discussed how difficult it is to make public sector processes more efficient. That goes some way towards explaining why public sector organisations find it so hard to make cost savings and productivity improvements. However, there are also wider organisational factors which can frustrate … Continue reading

The head of the government’s Independent Commission on Banking, Sir John Vickers, confirmed at the weekend that a break-up of Britain’s banks is being considered. The idea has widespread support from across the political spectrum. Nick Clegg called for such a break … Continue reading

The appointment of Neil Roden, former HR director of RBS, as a partner in PwC’s HR consulting practice provoked an angry two-post response from consultant and prolific management writer Paul Kearns. There seems to be some history between the two … Continue reading
