We are experts in supporting local authorities, the NHS, ICSs, social housing providers, the LGA, central government departments, the Fire Service, Police, and the independent/private and third sector.
We can enable you to translate your strategic and policy aims into coherent outcomes plans, within your available resources. Our approach ensures that strategy planning and budget processes are aligned, set over a planning cycle which enables multi-year decisions, and work across the silos of individual services.
We work with clients to understand how they can better defend their income streams, maximise income-generating opportunities, model risks and develop commercial strategies.
We baseline costs, assets and capabilities and benchmark against others to know the level of current performance. Armed with a robust evidence base, we can explore options including alternative service delivery models, governance arrangements and product development.
Good analysis is at the heart of everything we do. We can help you explore opportunities, identify options, test concepts, model and evaluate options.
Depending on the task at hand, we can incorporate demand modelling, financial analysis, risk analysis, process and systems analysis, benchmarking, qualitative and quantitative research, data analysis and market research into our services.
We help organisations develop commercially successful business plans. We work with you to understand your market, your company structure and capabilities. We will then help you define your value proposition, along with a comprehensive business model.
We assist organisations to build successful change programmes to deliver their strategic objectives and four-year budget proposals.
Having many years of experience working within the public sector itself, we have now, as consultants, designed, implemented and delivered numerous successful change programmes. We are also happy to mentor change teams or run sessions for Members or the Board on topics such as devolution, shareholder governance, best practice in commercialism, trading companies, ASCH integration and children’s trusts.
Our solutions meet genuine need and impact. Our diagnostic tools enable us to baseline, understand and work with the current scenario to identify risks and maximise opportunities.
We work collaboratively. Our solutions have integrity and credibility, are evidenced based, easy to use and work. We are fleet of foot, flexible and all our services contribute to improving outcomes for residents and service users.
We are intelligence driven. Our solutions are responsive to needs, quickly mobilised and resourced by affordable teams. We deliver solutions in a pragmatic, impactful and client centred way.
