APSE Training is pleased to offer a one-day masterclass for authorities on the development and delivery of a commercial strategy. The course will provide commercial awareness and commercial thinking in the public sector to Heads of Service and Senior Managers to enable them to implement a commercial strategy within their service areas.
The need to deliver more from less has never been so great. However this course is designed to facilitate a different view of how best to deliver services to other public sector bodies and private partners, whilst ensuring value-for-money services for the local authority.
The course aims to provide a well thought out and clearly understood methodology that the authority can use supportive legislation to:
Maximise the use of all available assets over extended trading hours and looking at other markets and sectors
Invest in service infrastructure and plan for financial growth - not top slicing budgets
Insource much needed revenues with both managed risk and minimised exposure to the local authority
Grow a fully-committed, 21st century workforce to deliver value add services, not just focusing on head count reduction
Help regulate the market by working in partnership with key stakeholders and clients
Be a stimulus for economic growth by creating new jobs, more apprenticeships, service investment and thinking more commercially with a true public-sector ethos.
The masterclass blends the best from both the private and public sector successes and experience and demonstrates that local authorities can “insource” and maximise income opportunities by using well-established tools and techniques. A case study example is used for a service function during the course of the workshop that is applicable to not just traditional frontline service but also regulatory and support functions.
