britishroses's insight:
London will remain a leading financial centre outside the EU and banks will still want to be headquartered in Britain due to low tax rates. Osborne and Cameron just months ago talked of how capable we are of prospering and growing outside of the EU, now making yet another U-turn they continue to manipulate and deceive the people of this country, so beware when they open their mouths of what comes out! We are been held back by the EU, it's time to once again spread our wings and soar!

Here's the one law that should have been included in the Queen's Speech | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
The Queen’s Speech covered a number of important issues this year – extremism and free speech, turning our schools into academies, the bill of rights, electric cars, the list goes on. But there was one glaring ommission: mental health. When are the Conservatives finally going to deliver the huge influx of funding they promised for mental health care? In today's list of new legislation, the mental health of prisoners was mentioned fleetingly – but that was it.

Univesral Credit Programme Reset - DWP Lessons Learned Exercise - a Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

Univesral Credit Programme Reset - DWP Lessons Learned Exercise - a Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
The reset of the Universal Credit Programme (“UCP”) by the Major Projects Authority (“MPA”) between February 2013 and May 2013 has been widely reported. Information recently released by the DWP reflects the scale of the problems that the UCP faced prior to the reset.

RFI1 – Has the DWP carried out its own “lessons learned” exercise covering the UCP during the period prior to the reset?

RFI2 - Has the DWP carried out or taken part in a “lessons learned” exercise with the MPA covering the UCP during the period prior to the reset?

RFI3 – If lessons learned exercises have been carried out was the output documented?

Please note that the DWP is required to consider my request broadly. This means that it cannot simply refuse it because any activities that took place weren’t called “lessons learned”. For the avoidance of doubt the Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) defines lessons learned as the learning gained from the process of performing the project. Formally conducted lessons learned sessions are traditionally held during project close-out, near the completion of the project. However, lessons learned may be identified and documented at any point during the project's life cycle. The purpose of documenting lessons learned is to share and use knowledge derived from experience to:

Promote the recurrence of desirable outcomes
Preclude the recurrence of undesirable outcomes

As a practice, lessons learned includes the processes necessary for identification, documentation, validation, and dissemination of lessons learned. Utilization and incorporation of those processes includes identification of applicable lessons learned, documentation of lessons learned, archiving lessons learned, distribution to appropriate personnel, identification of actions that will be taken as a result of the lesson learned, and follow-up to ensure that appropriate actions were taken.

Yours faithfully,

John Slater
