13:00- 14:00, 6th December 2023
Is there a particular service area you're struggling with?
Many of our clients are conducting service reviews to make sure they are performing at their best. Over time, often processes and ways of working evolve, but how do you take a good look at your service areas and make sure they are as efficient and impactful as possible?
Join us to reflect on:
- How to benchmark services against other organisations
- How to map your resources
- The importance of process reviews
- How culture can shape effectiveness in services
This session is ideal for heads of services and directors who are looking to streamline and improve their service delivery. We'll be sharing great tips and case studies from our work in a range of local authorities, to help you think about what changes you want to make in your service areas.
12:00 - 13:00, 19th January 2024
How do you deliver projects that really make a difference?
The world of project management and delivery has moved on since the pandmic! Many of our clients are thinking about how they deliver projects and what skills are needed.
Join us to reflect on:
- Delivering vs administering projects and change - how to make sure you're really making a difference
- Pace and governance and how they interlink
- Capacity issues in delivering projects
- The balance between planning change and fostering creativity
This session is ideal for project and programme managers, service heads and directors who need to deliver projects in a meaningful and impactful way.
12:00 - 13:00, 23rd February 2024
How do you ensure that grant delivery really makes an impact?
Many local authorities are being successful at securing short term grants which then need to be delivered at pace. Whether it's household support fund, shared prosperity fund, levelling up funding or others, they are welcome additional funds.
That said, they are often provided at short notice, and where councils don't always have the resources to deliver, so can feel like a 'rush job'. How do you make sure these grants really help to make a difference to your community?
Join us to reflect on:
- How to be ready to access grant funding in a way that really makes a difference to your area
- How to mobilise quickly to deliver grant funded activity
- How to evaluate impact and ensure you keep building on the foundations grants can help to provide.
This session is idea for directors and heads of service who deliver grant funded programmes, as well as corporate/policy leads who can learn about how to use grants to really make a difference. We will be sharing tips and case studies.
Are your Housing Services keeping you up at night?
Housing Services are, once again, under even further strains and some are at breaking point. With the introduction of the Social Housing (Regulations) Act 2023, the Consumer Standards, Awaab's Law and recent caselaw in homelessness and allocations , it is no wonder that colleagues are losing sleep.
This is why Trueman Change are delighted to welcome Associate Principal Consultant Deborah Wickham to the team! With over 20 years of experience supporting local authorities with housing pressures, she is the perfect person to share her thoughts, tips and advice for councils (and registered providers of social housing) in the current challenging climate.
Join us to reflect on:
- Social Housing (Regulation) Act 2023 and the Consumer Standards, how to engage residents and tenants but more importantly, how to ensure you are compliant!
- The Autumn Statement (to be delivered on the 22 November 23) - what is going to cause further sleep deprivation?
- Common pitfalls, strengths and weaknesses for different housing models
This session is ideal for, Chief Executives, Directors of Finance, Directors of Housing, and other senior officers with responsibility around delivery of strategy and compliance in this complex area.
