Policy Police: Rapid Response

Policy Police: Rapid Response

by Steved
This is a collection of all the short Policy Police stories I created up until early 2011. They were mostly written in response to particular events.This ranged from the imposition of some managerial fad - the Dashboard, or Information Security - or the implications of government policy.

Because these stories were originally published in one or two episodes, they tend to be a bit more "slapstick" than the longer ones.

I did this one to mark the second anniversary of doing this stuff. Partly because I was surprised that I was still going, but also because I had just got Manga Studio and this was the first non-Paint story I did.

Anyway. Thought I'd give the characters an anniversary, too.

In a moment of madness I volunteered to be "Information Security Champion". It was then a short step to "Could you present on this?" So I enlisted the Policy Police to help me out. Bizarrely the original presentation got thousands of hits on Slideshare. There must be loads of people out there baffled by this stuff....

With a change of government comes a new set of nonsense terms that managers start using in all seriousness. Seemingly overnight. "Horizon Shift" really was one of them that came in with the 2010 coalition government.

This one originally appeared in 2 parts as the Organisation slowly ground towards its end. I was reminded of some stuff I'd done on organisational culture and wondered how different people dealt with being in an oganisation without a future. As I was thinking about this there was much hilarity about one of the Executive Directors showing an interest in chainsaw courses...

I did this one just after our own All Staff Briefing. The news of our closure came as no surprise to anyone. Except senior management who had been too busy brown-nosing the minister to notice what was going on around them.

I was delighted when my friend and colleague Rob Englebright asked if I had any stuff he could use for a guest strip.

I had this material more-or-less ready. Most of it had really happened to another colleague shortly before. I just added a couple of bits from some other meetings of the great-and-good and we were ready to go.

In the grand tradition of the Beano, this was our Summer Special for 2010

This one-pager was provoked by our Directorate being deemed the worst offender for paper usage. Both printer paper and bum paper. In the end the Organisation did nothing beyond telling us that once. They never bothered collecting the data after that.
Did this in the run-up to the 2010 Election. As you can see, wee knew we were in trouble. But the higher up the food chain you got, they were more convinced the Organisation would survive.

It's one of those fads that organisations go through. It says:"Look, we're using big data!" and "Look, we're in control."
