Producing the Goods
Producing the Goods

This project will seek to define the frontiers of global performance on public sector productivity. It will use examples from technology, workforce reform, health and social care integration and demand management. We will identify a number of initiatives from across the world that are delivering outstanding performance in turning inputs into outputs (while improving or maintaining quality) and examine how these could be applied in a UK context.

NLGN propose a project which will help councils develop a clearer understanding of what the future looks like by identifying the potential of smarter, more integrated and networked cities and places. Only by taking a longer term strategic view towards the future can a clearer route map towards getting there be established, which can better frame decisions made today.
