A few of my recent posts have related to U K productivity and challenges.  This is not because the UK faces more challenges than anyone else (though Brexit is  causing some fears).

The UK is going through a ‘bad patch’ but is at least trying to do something about it with new committees and task forces being established.

Will they work?

I doubt it – but they might at least spark a discussion and debate which might release some fresh thinking

So I am relatively optimistic.  I hope you are too  – for your country.

Help generate discussion – that generates ideas.  We need ideas – lots of them. And we need to share them

And whether they relate to the UK – or somewhere else is irrelevant.  good ideas are good ideas wherever they originate.

In your organisation too, find ways of encouraging idea generation.  The more ides you have to choose from – the more success is likely.  If you stop people thinking, you stop creativity and innovation.
