Why doesn’t government work?

Is it the politicians, the civil servants, the political parties?
Or is it the system in which they all operate?

This episode introduces the experience and current thinking of co-presenter, Ed Straw.

We talk about his journey from being an engineering graduate to consulting at the heart of Westminster, how he encountered power and the confusion surrounding it. 

Then we get into his current thinking - he has found in Systems Thinking many effective responses to issues that have plagued governments down the decades. 

It’s the system not the people.
