New operating models for local government

  • Political buy-in
  • The resource to dual run
  • Engagement and communication
  • Cultural change
  • Looking ahead and taking the time to plan to get things right
  • Risk friendly & agile governance
  • Viewing the financial situation in a different light to only focusing on where cuts can be made
  • Wider acceptance and knowledge of complex systems, i.e. outcomes are emergent properties of system vs specifically attributable to the intervention
  • Becoming the norm
  • Start somewhere, go everywhere! I’m looking to speak with different colleagues and stakeholders
  • Find out where the ‘energy’ is to do things differently, and start there initially
  • Make people curious!
  • Demonstrating effective outputs
  • Structure change
  • Learn from the voluntary & community sector
