OPM ‘Toolkit for Change’ Workshops: Helping councils adapt for the future, now

Tuesday 12 February 2013

‘Toolkit for Change’ Workshops: Helping councils adapt for the future, now from OPM on Vimeo.

Whilst local government is highly adaptable, the pace of economic and legislative changes and the scale of challenges councils now face mean things must be done differently.

Our Toolkit for Change ‘challenge and creativity’ workshops are specially designed to teach council managers the skills required to meet the emergent needs of a new public sector – incorporating best practice from other councils, communities and the commercial world, without losing the core values of public service.

Rather than take our word for it, watch the short video above which brings the Toolkit for Change workshops to life, and includes feedback from participants.

“The great thing about these sessions is that people are very much involved in coming up with the solutions as opposed to being told what the solution is from above.”

Colin Carmichael, Chief Executive, Canterbury City Council
