This chapter discusses the diverging and converging points of the joined-up and the cabinet government. The chapter provides a background on the changes that have been ensued since the introduction of the joined-up government. In the first few sections of the chapter, the focus is on the importance of joined-up government, the failures that have graced joined-up government, the new institutions that have been created, and the improvements and innovations needed for the machinery of joined-up government. Particular focus is given on the five stages of policy development which are crucial in pinpointing the problems as well as the aspects needed for the joining-up horizontally. These five stages include: policy formation; public representation and a managerial explanation; good legislation; delivery; and major institutional or organizational innovation.
