Report by Strategic Policy Making Team, Cabinet Office
The Modernising Government White Paper promises changes to policy making to ensure that policies are strategic, outcome focused, joined up (if necessary), inclusive, flexible, innovative and robust. This report is the culmination of work on policy making carried out by the Cabinet Office to follow up publication of the White Paper. It aims to:
- examine what professional 'modernised' policy making should look like;
- provide a snapshot of current good practice as a high-level indication of areas where policy making is; and
- suggest possible levers for change to help to bring about the White Paper 'vision' for policy making.
