HHH Profs. Bryson & Crosby address to Victoria University, New Zealand

From Barbara Crosby's blog: "John Bryson and I were guests last week of the School of Government at Victoria University of Wellington where we were giving talks about leadership, strategic planning, and cross-sector collaboration. The school has the great advantage of being just across the street from parliament and in the midst of multiple national government buildings.

New Zealand’s government …has been a bastion of the results-oriented New Public Management (NPM) reforms championed by folks like Minnesota’s Public Strategies Group. However, as John and I have consulted with academics and government researchers here, we also heard desires to overcome the tendency of NPM to hamper collaboration among government agencies and with non-governmental organizations.

Next, John and I will lead a session explaining the potential of collaboration to create public value and showing how the Visual Strategy Mapping method can be used to help people from multiple sectors….Who knows: Before long, New Zealanders will join the fine Humphrey School tradition of plastering walls with inter-linked yellow ovals or PostIt notes to strategize about important issues."
