It's probably better than doing nothing, isn't it?
Stuart Rose was named Business leader of the year in 2006 for his work in transforming M&S. He is Chairman of Ocado, and has been Chairman of the Business Community. He is a man who has worked his way up from the shop floor. He didn't go to the 'right' schools, and hasn't arrived at the top via the old boys' network.
His job is to advise the government on culture changes within the NHS, and I think we should all be wishing him good luck - he has taken on something that could hardly be described as a plum job.
