Change and transformation

The need for local government to change to be fit for the future, and to meet both budget challenges and the expectations of our residents, is more important than ever and it is vital that we accelerate our transformation activities to truly be an Enterprising Council.

Work has been underway throughout 2020 under the Enterprising Council programme to look at how we manage change and transformation in the council and how we take a more strategic and co-ordinated approach. It is very clear from the review work we have done that we need a single and joined-up One Council approach to our vision, our ways of working and transformation that is understood by everyone.

Over the winter of 2020 PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) are working with us to do an in-depth study into the activities underway across the organisation and to establish a council-wide approach to transformation. This will support all change activity across the organisation and give us a single view of where our efforts are placed and the projects we're currently delivering in our Enterprising Council drive.

At the moment we have many initiatives happening across the organisation which seek to improve and change how we work but no single approach and vision, and we need that to ensure we are as effective as we can be and delivering value for our residents.

Colleagues across the organisation will be involved in the work and a key part of it is some initial data collection to understand where we currently place our efforts and how different activities are currently delivered across the council. We will need eveyone's help with this and it is really important that your voice is heard as part of this work.
