and try and anticipate what is going to happen
and who's going to be affected,
and how you can then manipulate
the resources you've got to hand
in order to create some sort
of breathing space for longer term planning to take place.
So the civil service skillset is in long-term planning,
military skillset is short-term planning,
rapidly changing scenarios.
And that's where we, I think, added most value,
was being able to use some of the tools that we employ
to identify where problems are,
and to try and get quick solutions to make something better.
You might not make the whole thing better,
but if you can improve one thing,
you can then step-by-step chip away at a problem
that on the face of it seems insurmountable.
