OPM’s local government team works with councils, their partners and local communities to find radical solutions to current challenges while safeguarding social outcomes.
Our longstanding experience in this sector means we understand the day-to-day realities that face senior managers, while our practice exchange and innovation work allow us draw on the latest thinking.
From Total Place to Community Budgets, efficiency savings to whole-system redesign, customer engagement to co-production, channel shift to demand management, we are finding ways to:
- use a range of research and engagement techniques to make sure that staff, service users and local citizens are informing and co-creating councils’s changing approaches;
- put public sector resources behind the creativity of communities;
- integrate services in ways that offer a holistic response to complex needs; and
- equip staff with commercial acumen and competitive skills, while holding onto their values and putting the customer first.
