Brainstorming policy with the Hon. Minister

One of the best parts of the job is sitting with the Minister and a few members of the senior team as we work out the finer details of new policy and considering all issues regarding the implementation of decisions made - this is really exciting and always challenging as we consider the national implications of policy and the "knock on" effects for other areas of the Government. A key issue is that we are moving forward so fast,that we have to explain the reasons why we do everything repeatedly and the advantages of our policies. We are being brave and questions we ask are always based about whether others are brave enough to walk the journey with us. This is challenging for many in a culture where things have traditionally evolved slowly - many do not really understand the need and our quest to be the "best in the world". Changing that view is interesting.
