The council is creating a new style organisation that is different and more agile from the one that existed before. We are exploring opportunities to do things differently, examining the way we work, the way we deliver high quality customer based services and the way we behave with a focus on the efficient and flexible use of our resources.
Success will depend on an organisational culture that rewards talent and success, empowers and enables people, and an environment that promotes and provides work-based learning that gives people the confidence to take decisions where it is necessary and appropriate to do so.
The new shape of the council has been developed following a full assessment of the national and local context, financial situation and statutory requirements.
This strategy provides an overarching framework for the whole organisation. It sets out how we will develop the council as a whole to deliver its vision in the above context.
Its key aim is to inform directorate activity.
