Managing Change: Public Services Beyond 2015

  • Tuesday, 09 December 2014
  • Manchester Conference Centre
  • 08:30 - 16:30
  • Overview

Managing Change: Public Services Beyond 2015 will support public sector organisations and managers transform how services are delivered in order to meet public expectations with less funding. The solution will require some radical change and re-shaping of services as well as more traditional ways to improve productivity in order to provide the services that people need.

Sweeping changes are underway, driven by cuts to public spending of £11.5bn in 2015/16 and a further £100bn a year before the end of the decade in order to eliminate the public sector spending deficit. This will require forward planning by all public sector managers as to the changes that need to be made. However, delivering change of this magnitude successfully is very difficult. It will require a hard look at whether certain services are necessary and how new methods of delivering essential services could be employed. With every penny counting like never before and heightened public scrutiny, the pressure on managers to deliver change will become intense. Service transformation and integration can help to drive greater efficiencies, avoid costly duplication and improve service delivery. This conference explores how to get it right.

Join us at Managing Change: Public Services Beyond 2015 for the opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners from across the public sector with invaluable knowledge and experience of leading innovative change initiatives at both local and national scale. Delegates will receive practical advice and inspiration from a range of real-life examples from public and private sector sources to help lead on change management and service improvement.
