Responding to a call from councils, the LGA is developing a new online hub that brings together practical help for local government about innovation and efficiency into one place.
Developed by councils for councils, the Transformation and Innovation Exchange brings practical support for councils in one place. Featuring a range of case studies, guidance, tools, performance data, training and other resources the exchange will help councils deliver better value for money and improve outcomes for communities.
The aim is to create an interactive space where councils can come together to share learning and support each other.
A key feature is an online self-assessment tool which will help councils identify improvement opportunities and useful support, such as peer challenge or wider sector-led resources, focused on key areas:
- leadership and management
- approach to change
- performance monitoring
- financial planning and viability
- getting the best from staff
Please also take a look at the beta of the self-assessment tool, and tell us what you think via the feedback option on the tool's landing page.
The LGA is developing the Transformation and Innovation Exchange together with Pfiks Ltd, iESE Ltd, Knowledge Hub and Porism Ltd.
