STEPPING UP VALUE FOR MONEY Modernising Processes and Systems delivery THE PROJECTS December 2007 we stated that the team would ‘seek out and manage innovation in a way that supports the new culture we are seeking to create…develop and support our capacity for creative thinking and equip our staff to take advantage of practical and innovative ways of working that are smarter and better….. become active in sharing and learning from each other by bringing innovation to the forefront of the improvement agenda across Rochdale MBC’.
Growing REFINEMENT V TRANSFORMATION debate and discussion on the way the Stepping Up project is developing.
It is worth looking at what others have found along the same journey as we are part of wider community.
Not because we are failing. Because we need to ensure we remain transformational and not more of the same.

STEPPING UP Maturity Model Transformation is not understood, projects undertaken piecemeal. Transformation and cross business Improvement Projects discussed but little action/commitment. A few cross business projects undertaken, but little fundamental change results. A comprehensive corporate programme of transformation projects enabled by technology exists, but difficulties in resourcing, leadership and overcoming resistance. A programme exists, coupled with effective governance arrangements, endorsed by the Board which proves effective in delivering value. Transformation is ‘business as usual’ lying at the heart of corporate strategy, management responsibilities, efficiency, business improvement and policies.
