Design, innovation, behavioural economics, narrative, policy visualisation, Gov 2.0, horizon scanning, scenario planning - these and many more approaches are being discussed and applied within the Australian public sector, yet there are some key questions sitting above them:

- how might these different tools and approaches fit together?
- what do they mean for individual public servants and public sector agencies?
