Ten years ago we told them they were going to have red doors and they had red doors. Now we consult about everything. A Housing Officer
The vision Delivering the best treatment to each service user at the right time through the most suitable channel at the appropriate cost: a citizen- centric approach with efficient and effective service delivery
Data issues Accuracy Completeness Relevance Up to the minute Not used inflexibly.
Strategic difficulties Multiple systems No overall responsibility No data strategy Multiple channels of collection Lack of senior management buy-in Lack of personnel / technology / budget Training and cultural issues
The costs of poor data Your image Annoyed service users Failure to maximise opportunity Poor service delivery /Inefficiency Operational inadequacy Competitive disadvantage Demoralised staff.
Big Danger This approach encourages the perception of customers as records, numbers, segments and service centres. I am not just a number
Effects of poor data Its frustrating when you call them up and they cant do the things you need over the phone Ive been with them over thirty years. I expect them to know a bit about me. Why the hell should I be even thinking I am interested in resident committees when they cant even get my name right? It makes you think, do I want to stick with this shower or what? I only ever get junk mail from the council which I am not interested in When I rang to follow up my crime report nobody knew what I was talking about.
Your Charter Respect service users rights to privacy Discretion is vital in building confidence You must offer explanations, reassurance and honesty
Dear Sir/Madam, I recently got an from a man in prison. I dont know anybody in prison, but he seemed to know a lot about me! I have found out that he got my name and address from a computer disk I had used at college. I had entered a lot of personal information on the disk as part of my course. My tutor used the same disk to teach the course in prison. What should I do? Yours, Worried
