Policy Lab is a huge inspiration for me. In this post Laurence Grinyer provides a great insight into the Lab and into the Policy Design mindset.
He also describes some of the Policy Lab ways of working and techniques, which my team and I have borrowed from the Open Policy Making Toolkit and used on policy challenges in recent months to great effect.
“To put it simply; I think the Policy Lab mindset promises to radically change policy-making for the better. From its culture, to its people and its ways of working; I think it offers a glimpse of how the civil service might look in 10 or 20 years.”
