Whitehall`s Black Box
Author: Guy Lodge and Ben Rogers
ISBN: 1 86030 299 8
Subject: Whitehall, Civil Service, Democracy, Politics
Description: Whitehall is the most important organisation in Britain, yet it has largely been left to reform itself. Drawing on more than 65 interviews with senior civil servants, ministers and public management leaders, as well as other research, this report argues that despite its many qualities, the senior civil service suffers from weaknesses in key areas: it is still too often amateur and insular, and is poor at strategic thinking, leadership and performance management.
