Local authorities are under increasing pressures to respond quickly, and at scale, to fluctuating demands and unexpected events in their local communities. In an age of social media and online retail, citizens have greater expectations and want the ‘Amazon experience’ with omni-channel digital services that provide them with information and solutions seamlessly.
Managing such expectations and maintaining day-to-day services at the required standards can become intensely challenging, leaving you with little time to drive innovation, reimagine services and transform operations to meet the future needs of local communities.
All of this, and more, can be achieved by building resilience. In this report, we delve deeper into:
