Unofficial ATO account on Ozloop suspended

I know full well that senior officials within the Australian Public Service do not like the disclosures and discussions taking place on OZloop.



In particular, they do not like the fact that we are highlighting the systemic nature of problems often attributed to organisational culture.

Public service innovation - No straight lines

To introduce this post on No straight lines I want to take you on a journey. That's on the basis that to know where we are and where we are heading we actually need to know where we've been.
