  • In which situations has this arrangement proved most valuable, and where has its potential been hardest to realise?
  • What have the critical factors been for these arrangements to work successfully?
  • Where are the key risks in developing and adopting this model, and what lessons have been learned from organisations’ difficulties in doing so?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages over a traditional private sector outsourcing, procurement led approach to delivery?
  • How can government bodies decide the balance between in and outsourcing, and what capabilities should they retain?
