How about an updated version of Total Place

Abdool Kara says Total Place 'remains to many an idea that has the potential to square the circle of improved outcomes at less cost at a time where there are few other solutions presenting themselves'.

One way public bodies can look to achieve longer-term changes is through making better use of the totality of public funding spent locally.

Rather than operating in traditional ‘silos' created by organisational boundaries, bodies may elect to work jointly by aligning their objectives, activities and resources where they believe a collaborative approach can add most value.
