In this paper, we explored the increasing requirement for leaders to make complex judgements, to rethink and redesign systems, and to find integrative solutions that make sense from several different perspectives.

We identified the need to develop a stronger ‘problem solving capability’ across London; and a greater self‐awareness about mental models, to equip the next generation of leaders for the future. We suggested ways that the London Collaborative could add value to the development of networks across the city, without duplicating important development work that is going on elsewhere.
