“You can’t let people decide what they want! What if they get it wrong?”

As a public service professional, this rather cliched thought inevitably goes through my brain, and no doubt the brains of some of my colleagues across the public sector.

Which is funny, on one count because it assumes that we won’t get it wrong even as professionals, and secondly that there is a clear definition of right and wrong. I heard about the following case study from Seattle at an LGIU seminar I went to a couple of months back, and to me it is a great example of testing institutionalised beliefs and the potential of what can be achieved when we all start trusting each other a little more 🙂

Though I do wonder what a Camden version of the Fremont Troll might look like!
