Hi Annie, I know Tina Nabatchi has done a lot of work in the US context so would be well worth checking out her stuff.

My advice would also be to think about what’s already working well in your own office or organisation and see if you can’t do more of that or if it inspires other things. Here is an example of that kind of thinking.
