I recently attended the IEWM (Improvement and Efficiency West Midlands) conference #IEWMconf14 - sponsored by Virgin Media.
Surrounding the overt acknowledgement of increased service delivery challenges, in the face of increasingly reduced access to finance, with plenty of stats provided to support the negative forward view, e.g. a 7% avg. year-on-year budget reduction for all councils across the country to 2020, while Central Government continues to expect stable or improving service delivery, I have to say, I was impressed with the level of acceptance of some pretty advanced leadership issues within the ‘Public Sector’ community.
I heard and held some very rich conversations!
