Technical Strategy {This page is under development - April 2014}

Back to Basics

The two year period of this section was perhaps the most tumultuous period in OS recent history. The first year started with a new Director General who had inherited an organisation whose activites were growing and an internal market which had become a deadweight. He introduced radical thinking to determine the core remit for the organisaton as it entered the digital 21st century in a world increasingly dominated by the web. The second year, followed his resignation, with what proved to be a difficult period, for some of us, in trying to preseve the strategy while a new appointment was made.
