Challenges the belief that the UK public sector is amateurish, inefficient, remote and poorly managed. Argues that private sector managers are looking to the public sector for best practice in training; staff retention (through family/friendly policies); motivation; change management; recruitment; and human resource management in general. Acknowledges that this good practice is uneven, pointing to problems in public sector remuneration, but suggests that the ability of the public sector to recruit people with business backgrounds indicates the excellence that can be found in the public sector.
