Will it be Bleak House or Great Expectations for the UK?

25 Nov 2010

Take a look at the Briefing Paper (Resources > Downloads) entitled Bleak House or Great Expectations and give some thought to how creative you are and expect your team to be.  The UK finds itself in an unpleasant situation economically and yet the Prime Minister Gordon Brown had an early warning signal of a banking collapse as the greatest threat to national security.  Sadly his response was to close down the establishment that made the prediction.  There may not have been hard evidence for the thinking at the time, but with hindsight the frighteningly prophetic nature of the warning seems at least to have been a lost opportunity to consider the potential and risk. We place too much reliance on institutions at times and not enough value on creative thought.  Now we need some real creativity to get us out of a deep hole.
