David was a great help to us in Blyth Valley in carrying out a review of the VCS infrastructure support in the area. He has extensive knowledge of working in the sector and his final report helped us map out a way forward.

Better Government

I’ve just published a very short article by Mark Funkhouser, Director of the USA based Governing Institute, who talks about the value of OBA/RBA thinking in  improving community conditions.  He quotes public policy pioneer Aaron Wildavsky in saying ““The highest form of analysis is using intellect to aid interaction between people”.

He talks about the OBA approach as being “cleaner, simpler, more practical and less elitist”. I’ll second that. You can see the article by clicking HERE
