To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what the total cost was of producing the Cabinet Office’s Sharing the Leadership Challenge video. (94468)

The Sharing the Leadership Challenge video was produced in February 2006 as a management tool for use across Government to enable senior officials and management in taking forward the efficiency agenda. The total cost of production including editing, associated fees and VAT was £18,385.03

The Government have embarked upon a programme of wide scale change around shared services, and particularly around corporate shared services (HR, Finance, IT) as part of the transformational Government agenda.

Experience from the private and public sectors demonstrates that these changes can only be made with significant leadership commitment. The DVD was designed to help senior management across Whitehall understand how they can enable this.
