Start of the journey I wouldn’t start from here! Three different authorities different boundaries different services different sizes different budgets different cultures.. but similar values well performing similar pressures public service orientated willing to partner
The ultimate destination? 3 design criteria: Best of the private sector : use of a private consultancy Public - public partnership : sharing services Potential to sell services to others Built on trust Innovation Improved quality Additional resilience Reduced costs Agreed at outset Used in the design Different weighting for each partner
Steps along the route Initial managers meeting Strategic business case Initial business case Detailed business case GO LIVE New partners?
Steps along the route Initial managers meeting Strategic business case Initial business case Strategic business case GO LIVE Programme management – project team, change teams Pilot shared functions Communications....Communications.... Communications ! Standard process designs New partners? Staff relocation and transfer (TUPE) Service available Implementation Culture workshops, branding,.. Business readiness
What does it look like? Single shared services organisation Central customer contact centre Integrated business centre Other professional teams Strong theme of self service – web interface £4m financial savings (apportioned) All teams under one employer – 400+ staff Simple governance (legal agreement) (inc. performance and finance) Beginning to attract other customers Other future services to share
What went well? We had strong, determined governance – by the leaders of the organisations Detailed specification of each process and cross partner agreement Strong programme management and project team Clear milestones Savings - on course to achieve We worked through problems
What would I do differently? Spend more time on designing the culture and earlier Do more to prepare the organisations for the change Involve staff more in designing the shared service unit – it should be a change for all Even more communications! Explore different views more openly – recognise differences Adequately resource the change
