The SfH Career Framework team are building a database of roles and people so that staff and potential recruits can understand
what their local role or title is equivalent to
what they need to do in order to progress to the next career level
what career paths others have followed
what the opportunities are with their skill set
and so that organisations and workforce planners can
understand the different local titles used and how they relate to competence, experience and autonomy
Fantasy government - what would I do if I were in government? Well how about reduce corporation tax, increase income tax, increase minimum wage and invest in job creation in the regions? That would be a good start - create jobs where there are workers, then make sure that the right amount of tax is collected and at the same time reduce spend on benefits which are only used to increase profits of selfish organisations.
PwC found that successful companies are getting more mature in their project management ability.

Many public service changes have little basis in evidence. Their success (or otherwise) does not appear to depend on how 'good' the policy itself is, but rather on how it has been implemented. This relies on staff attitudes and relationships. My research falls into a number of broad categories: finding out what is currently happening; what people think about it; and what people think it will mean.
When calculating a Social Return on Investment (SROI) evaluation or SROI forecast , sometimes you have to rely on published figures from reports. But if these are from a few years ago, then they probably need adjusting for inflation.
There are calculators on the web to do this for you, but I found them cumbersome and it was difficult to keep a record of what calculator I'd used, and how, for which value - auditability and transparency is vital for SROI. So here's a spreadsheet to do this properly!
The Social Return Company is an association of like-minded specialists with a great track record of engaging stakeholders, instituting common-sense measures, and reporting to invigorate. Our mission is that people enjoy what they do, and we achieve this by supporting them to measure and report, and recognise what they achieve. Some organisations have found this very valuable for PR/marketing, or contract negotiation.see http://minney.org/about-us-media-kit
