Natural Partnerships?

Howard Davies

Director of Programmes


“What is the point of devolution? It is for the political process to get as close to the citizen as possible. What is the point of our public service reforms? Likewise it is to bring the citizen onto centre stage in the process as well”

Rhodri Morgan AM, BBC regeneration institute lecture-7 October 2004

a citizen centred public service model
A Citizen Centred Public Service Model
  • Resulted in a cooperative/collaborative model of public service delivery

“Where the relationship between citizens and service is based on empowering the citizen to not just purchase a unit of service but to participate in public service design and delivery based on shared outcomes”

  • Framed within a wider SD Action Plan
  • Now articulated in the shared One Wales agenda
  • Delivery based on the recommendations of Beecham’s review of local service delivery

general principles
General Principles
  • Adopt a clear agreed vision and a focus on key outcomes
    • Wales Conservation Plan
    • Living Landscapes
    • Living Seas
  • Maintain a common language – avoid different ‘takes’
  • Recognise connectivity in relationships – identifying elements of flux – social capital
  • See through the fog – remain focussed on the vision and true to your aims – if one partner pushes off course
  • Agree targets
  • Be clear over responsibilities
  • Monitor progress
  • The need for a clear identity that stands alone – partners have to buy into something
  • The need for an obvious culture – partners have to buy into an agreed set of values and philosophies that may differ from their own
  • Establishing ownership and allegiance – the whole must be greater than the sum of the parts
  • Be aware of fragile relationships – this cannot be just personal
  • Move away from the complicated rhetoric – these are just functional human and organisational relationships
