Responding to a call from councils, the LGA is creating a new online hub that brings together practical help for local government about innovation and efficiency into one place.
Developed with local government, for local government, the upcoming Transformation and Innovation Exchange will feature a range of case studies, guidance, tools, performance data, training and other resources to help councils continue to deliver value for money and better 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:
- understanding of the local place and priority setting
- leadership of place
- financial planning and viability
- organisational leadership and governance
- capacity to deliver.
The LGA is currently working with our partners and councils to make sure we get this right.
Please take a look at the prototype of the self-assessment tool via the link below, and tell us what you think via the feedback option on the tool's landing page or the email address below.
NB: all information added to the prototype during testing will be deleted before the beta is launched.
A full version of the Transformation and Innovation Exchange will be made live at the LGA Annual Conference and Exhibition in July.
The LGA is developing the Transformation and Innovation Exchange together with Pfiks Ltd, iESE Ltd, Knowledge Hub and Porism Ltd.
