Bite-size pieces: carousel!
'Looking far and
wide for potential partners can also avoid one of the great enemies of creative
partnership working: the Carousel Syndrome. This describes the situation where
the same old faces turn up to every new partnership initiative dealing with a particular
issue or locality. This can lead to the same old approaches and ideas being
recycled into new contexts. It is true that what has worked before might well
work again, but without the energising and transforming contributions of new
perspectives, second hand solutions are unlikely to provide complete answers to
the new challenges faced by new partnerships.'
