How Public Is Your Public Body?

Published on

I don't know one public body, particularly in the education world, that doesn't have the mantra, the strategies or the policies which make sure that stakeholders are consulted, that dialogue is continuously deepened and that the organisation "really gets to know its public".

But when you ask the question about how public your public body is, or how open your organisation is, you are immediately going to have to answer the question of how private you want it to be. The two words are inextricably linked and most organisations still tend to tread on the side if private rather than public.

So when you are comfortable with your organisation's background and the myths of 5 Million Years on which you are going to base your future strategies, how can you move forward when the world is so, well, new and ever-changing?
