At our event on how we drive corporate improvement, Alistair Hughes, Assistant Director for Improvement at Greenwich Council shared the journey of his organisation. This was followed by a discussion on how to link medium-term financial strategies with strategic planning, how to support the senior leadership to develop and drive the vision at both officer and political level, how to mobilise managers across the improvement programme and in particular frontline staff who will be solving problems with residents and will have insightful ideas on how to make the change positive with them.
An then one of the participants asked: “If there was one thing you could change in your org around this agenda-what would it be and why?” What would it be for you?
