Kafka Field Labs help organisations to begin to tackle bureaucratic dysfunction. Typically, this process takes time, however, and organisations can falter as new ‘priorities’ emerge. In order to maintain focus, the Kafka Brigade designs and facilitates a series of stocktakes similar to the CitiStat model applied in the United States. We use empirical evidence in the form of the case studies and performance data to draw a picture of progress, which enables the senior authorisers (politicians and/or executives) to evaluate and set actions for improvement. An experienced senior Kafka Brigadier
moderates the sessions. The number and frequency of sessions varies, but regularity is crucial. Each series of stocktakes is tailor made.
