Sample text

In this chapter we draw out the main points of the modernising agenda, in particular the centrality of experimentation, continuous learning from best practice elsewhere, and policy transfer not only to show the new challenges you are being presented with in a rapidly changing world, but also to identify the types of skills and competences that are essential to manage professional, organizational and individual performance. In the context of greater outcome and impact measures and other forms of target setting, scrutiny and auditing, regeneration managers who are able to act more entrepreneurially, innovatively and creatively, take risks and be experimental must carry out their roles by identifying the barriers to achieving objectives.

For enthusiasts of neighbourhood management and community participation the difficulty focuses on whether improved service delivery needs to come first before the public are engaged. The broader issue which undermined the potential of such processes to effect change was the emergence of the ‘new managerialism’ in UK local government (Speeden and Diamond 1993). The reforms introduced both at a local level and by the centre emphasized the need for enhanced managerial and professional powers. As a number of commentators (Gaster 1995; Hoggett 1991) have indicated, the significance of managerial skills, in decision making, resource allocation and delivery of services, was transformed during the late 1980s and 1990s in the UK.

It is clear that there have been many diverse approaches and methods of investigating policy learning and transfer, and recent attempts have been subjected to scrutiny and criticism. Nationally the Cabinet Office, Social Inclusion Unit and Neighbourhood Renewal Unit have issued discussion reports on policy learning and transfer of innovative ideas, whereas OECD has sponsored comparative benchmarking studies, study visits, temporary assignments, use of foreign experts on policy design, monitoring and evaluation (Luxembourg Conference 2002), in the belief that transnational learning can improve the quality of policy making (Stampfer 2002).
