‘GOD’s’ coming replacement with a civil service ‘Trinity’ is a further sign that policy making is becoming even more divorced from its implementation

By Colin Talbot

Abstract

Sir Gus O’Donnell was unique for his interest in the ‘sharp end’ of policy-making. As the outgoing Head of the Civil Service is set to be replaced by a triumvirate of a ‘policy’ man and two ‘policy implementers,’ Colin Talbot argues that the new arrangement reflects Whitehall’s obsession with policy-making and is likely to backfire as policy continues to be made without considering the nuts and bolts of how to make policy work
