Every organization delivers services to its customers, whether in the private sector, the public sector, or somewhere in between.

 But …..

  • What’s a service?
  • Who is a customer?
  • How do you define them,
  • How do you evaluate them?  and
  • How do you know they are being delivered effectively?

Adopting a formal and disciplined approach to defining and managing services is a critical step in their improvement.

Formal definition of services can significantly enhance your ability to understand, measure and identify opportunities for improvement.

This presentation explores how to effectively assess and evaluate services. In particular, it introduces the Municipal Reference Model as a ‘Made in Canada’ framework that has become the de facto standard for defining and evaluating public sector services in local government.

Join Melinda Munro (LinkedIn profile) as she provide insight and case studies on how organizations can improve their service offerings. She is a lawyer with extensive experience in the municipal sector.

Melinda has successfully implemented performance frameworks for major Canadian cities. Her hands-on approach to conducting service reviews is focused on ensuring maximum knowledge transfer to organizations and employees. Drawing on her background as an advocate, she uses rigorous and disciplined techniques for aligning service design/delivery with Council goals and community aspirations.

Presented by : Keith Richards Consultants

Agile is here to stay and organizations need to embrace the new wave of agile thinking. But to succeed with Agile and to reap the benefits it can deliver it is essential that you have good governance in place.

At the heart of using Agile on large projects, in complicated situations and possibly with distributed teams, lies the controls that are placed around the agile behaviors and working practices.

This webinar will look at how to ensure that governance is ‘agile friendly’.

It looks at what can be used that is already being used …and what needs to change. It examines what is old school and will hinder agility and what is new and works well in today’s climate where hitting deadlines and protecting quality is of paramount importance.

You may be surprised by some of the points made in this presentation – sometimes ‘less is more’ when it comes to control…whereas at other times it can lead to disaster!

If you would like to know more about reaping the benefits of agile in controlled environments and how to avoid the disasters then register for your free place.
