Public Sector Services
We have a wealth of experience in working with individuals and teams
at all levels and truly understand the links between central government policy and local delivery, and the problems that can
arise in designing and delivering transformational programmes in challenging circumstances.
We provide general workshops and seminars both independently and in conjunction with Regional Efficiency and Improvement
Partnerships (RIEPs) and the Local Government Information Unit (LGIU).
Any of our workshops can be tailored for delivery to single organisations and we specialise in designing
bespoke development packages tailored to fit demanding rerquirements.
Transformation and Efficiency Support
We pride ourselves in our ability to work effectively at all levels
by understanding the delivery issues faced and creating the capacity and capability needed to deliver innocative solutions.
We can help:
'blue sky thinking' at senior management level, tying internal and external drivers to effective progammes of
- elected members to better understand their role in modern local government
- service directors who are looking for proven ways in which they can improve service delivery whilst reducing
- operational staff to develop better customer focus and see their importance in
effective service delivery
All of our work is based on
what we know from experience and best practice examples from other local authorities and public sector organisations.
