  5. Organisation Structure andRoutine Operations • The current structure is a product of history and reinforces the old ways of doing things • Customer service is fragmented across four divisions, so lacks focus and accountability • HQ and regional customer activities are not integrated • The close links with Government for provision of staff and services impact on efficiency and flexibility • Old systems and bureaucratic procedures have led to functional working and heavy ‘back office’ staffing • Full management of complaints is not practiced

  6. Functional split

  7. Vision of future use of I.T. • A fully integrated customer information system which automates many of the current manual ‘work arounds’ • Electronic document distribution and storage • On-line comprehensive information for all staff dealing with any customer contact method (phone, letter, face-to-face, ESD) • Choice of language for both external and internal interfaces • Caution needs to be exercised when promoting customer service facilities

  8. Evolution v. Revolution • Process modification by:-- business process reviews (evolution)- business process re-engineering (revolution) • WSD’s process changes will not be revolutionary - more an evolutionary leap • WSD’s organisation structure requires a more revolutionary re-assessment
