​How we helped to win the 1997 General Election

In the mid-1990s, the Labour Party had been out of power for 16 years and still bore the scars of losing the 1992 election from what had seemed a winning position.  One of the criticisms of Labour was that they had no experience of and no idea how to manage the machinery of government.

This workshop will describe a 12 month management development programme which was run for the whole Labour Front Bench team in 1995-96 by a joint team from Andersen Consulting and Templeton College.  The programme was designed around "shadow departmental ministerial teams" and included project work on key Labour policies such as Scottish Devolution, Regulation of Utilities and the Minimum Pension Guarantee.

Bob Harris was the programme designer and joint programme director, and led sessions with all the shadow ministerial teams.  In this first public description of the assignment, he will describe how the programme was developed and delivered, how it was received by the participants, and some key messages about working effectively with political parties.
