Solutions offers unrivalled expertise in the latest public service management theory and practice. Our experienced in-house team is complemented by a network of carefully selected associates, which means we can offer support in all aspects of local government service delivery, efficiency, performance and cost reduction.
APSE's consultants have a strong track record in delivering effective solutions that reduce costs and improve performance for council services across the UK. Our team of experts combine a unique understanding of direct local authority service provision with the application of latest management techniques. Our consultancy procedure includes a diagnostics review, followed by an options appraisal and practicable recommendations. The consultancy is enhanced by our ability to draw upon the association's policy knowledge, training capabilities and performance networks data, something which is unique to APSE.
In addition to experience in key topics and services, solutions offers expertise in:
APSE's place at the forefront of thinking on income generation gives our solutions team an excellent understanding of commercial opportunities, and of legislative and practical aspects of trading and charging. Our experts conduct regular workshops, coaching and service reviews to identify any possibilities for income generation.
APSE has pioneered demand management approaches in response to financial pressures facing local authorities.
APSE Solution's interim management service draws upon decades of experience, ensuring that we offer local authorities a safe pair of hands during sensitive times of transition, manager absence, or when a special skill-set is required.
APSE interim managers are highly qualified, and are experts in their field. As a result, they will be able to step into an appropriate role immediately. An interim manager will become embedded within the council or organisation, working as part of the management team for a set period of time, usually between three to twelve months. Our interim managers can provide a fresh perspective, implement effective strategies on-site and mentor existing staff.
