Better Public Services Through Experimental Government, March 2015
How do we know, in advance, that a social policy will work? Often the honest answer is we don’t because, unlike other areas where experimentation is gaining currency, in social policy, we don’t test things out.
This paper advocates for the need for an experimental ethos in government. Arguing that testing things out doesn't mean the abandonment of values and beliefs. Rather it allows for the systematic testing out of policies before roll out thereby supporting the efficient use of public funds and the maximising of public good.
