17-18 September 2015 Crowne Plaza Marlow, Buckinghamshire
The election result has not changed the difficult fiscal environment in which councils must radically transform services to improve efficiency and at the same time offer highly effective, but focused, services.
But it is also a time of opportunity in which councils are seeking enhanced powers and reaching out to other bodies in order to boost local economies and improve residents’ lives.
At this year’s event, the Local Government Chronicle (LGC) is inviting council chief executives and partner organisations to discuss how best the sector can adapt to meet these goals.
Come to Capita's workshop 15:35 – 16:35, 17 September
As well as sponsoring the summit, Capita will be holding a workshop, hosted by our data expert, Neil Mackin, titled ‘How can a council chief executive best enable the use of data as a strategic tool for their local area?’.
In this workshop, we will share lessons and examples from public and private sector organisations looking to be insight driven – managing and using data as a corporate asset, and gaining insight, which allows them to:
- change the way they interact with citizens
- tailor services at every touchpoint
- commission services more effectively
- drive down end-to-end cost of delivery by logistics optimisation
- enable citizens to better support one another.
We'll look at ways to change the culture within an organisation to one that appreciates the power of data, as well as the more practical necessities regarding the infrastructure needed for successful data management. We will also look at how open data can be used for real benefit beyond the organisation alone – to empower the community to become change agents that enrich the life of the locality.
