Britain faces policy challenges. Some are specific to the UK, and some are the effect of global megatrends which we must respond to. Technological change, our ageing population and the climate challenge come just as the vote to leave the European Union reveals a dissatisfaction among many with the way things have always been done.

For many policy challenges, incremental improvement is the answer: the steady improvement of performance, learning by experience and data.  But sometimes the whole approach to a topic needs to be revisited, disrupted or reimagined.

Policymakers have often looked overseas for inspiration. But other governments are not the only source material. We show how there are lessons to learn from airlines, ride-hailing services, corporate payroll schemes and even fast food businesses.

We are not calling for a specific future – but we are reimagining it. What do you think?
