Principles

  • Innovation rather than tradition to be the keyword

  • break the assumption that everything that government does is to be provided by the public sector

  • Levers to drive up standards are: ~ money only provided for modernisation ~ Public Service Agreements set out service standards e.g. cutting class sizes, reduce waiting lists

  • Compete (use best supplier whether private or public)

  • Collaborate (work across organisational boundaries)
