enablers hr
Enablers: HR

Scope, progress & next steps

  • This enabling work-stream provides the critical HR policies, practices and tools to help bring about the organisational changes inherent in the programme. The key products involve:
  • HR toolkit for facilitating operational changes… this identifies ways in which the people implications will be planned, managed and implemented within our statutory and employee relations framework. It includes arrangements for consultation, displacement, redeployment, retraining etc. A draft toolkit has now been devised and has been circulated for comment amongst programme team. The final version will be widely circulated for approval in October.
  • Workforce Development Plan … this sets out an ongoing process ensuring that the Council has the right number of people in the right places with the right skills to deliver improved or new services . It provides a template for trying to predict the future demand for different types of staff and seeking to match this with supply through recruitment, retention, individual and organisational development.
  • It will also provide the management development blueprint to take the management structures project forward

Enablers: ICT

Scope, progress & next steps

This enabling work-stream provides the necessary

ICT software products and infrastructure to help bring

about the range of new services, processes and operating models

Substantial initial work has been done:

Phase 1: Business Transformation – Engagement with the work stream Design & Implementation teams, to establish alignment with existing projects, strategy and the technology infrastructure. This phase will identify Business Process transformation opportunities at a high level that will require ICT.

Phase 2: Technology Foundation activities – work which has been identified that is needed to put in place the key ICT enablers which will provide the building blocks on which solutions will be built, for example CRM, Single Customer Account, Employee Self Service & Enterprise Content Management solutions such as Document imaging/management, Process Workflow and work collaboration.

Phase 3: Business Solution activities – more detailed requirements coming out of the Think Efficiency ‘to be’ reports which are required and are to be built on the foundations such as the tailoring of systems eg. ECM, ESS or CRM.

Phase 4: Organisational Development and Skills Awareness - Embed new or revised business processes and standards across the organisation based upon the requirements of the Business Solutions phase. Implement the appropriate training and development programs to ensure that all staff are fully confident and competent in any new processes and systems
