For those of us who take a particular interest in this sort of thing, Public Strategist’s post on changing Whitehall is fascinating. (The image above is taken from that post, which details all permissions etc.)
Their conclusion is excellent:
So now we know where we have been and where we are going. Nothing can possibly go wrong.
For those who also take an interest in the machinery behind the machinery, the Institute for Government’s excellent publication on government changes notes the disruption such reorganisations cost.
If you’re into this sort of thing – and I, for one, cannot see how you possibly couldn’t be – it’s well worth a read.
