James Henderson, Research Associate with What Works Scotland, considers the final reflective learning report from the Aberdeenshire case site and the challenges of ‘putting Christie into action’.
The report – At the frontier of collaborative and participatory governance – builds on What Works Scotland’s action research work with both local and central community planning partnership (CPP) partners in Aberdeenshire over 20 months to the end of 2016. It draws from reflective interviews (summer 2017) with 23 local and central practitioners and policy-makers working across the CPP.
James explains how he used (interpreted and analysed) this material to create eight discussions that could be used to inform ongoing dialogue with a public service partnership.
