The TIC Programme is underpinned by a flexible and pragmatic approach, and makes use of a range of methods and techniques depending on the nature of the project. Many of the projects adopt traditional project management techniques and utilise a variety of methodologies based around data analysis and process review work, while others have adopted the ‘systems thinking’ approach to help re-design services in support of both service improvement and delivery of efficiency savings.
One of the key features of the TIC approach is that, as well as supporting services to identify the potential for change, it will actually provide capacity and support to make change happen, often through re-designing working practices and developing new models of service delivery.
The TIC programme to date has been made up of a range of corporate and service based projects. Proposals for projects can emerge from a number of sources, including elected members, CMT, departments or individual members of staff.
The prioritisation and selection of projects for inclusion in the TIC Programme is then undertaken by the TIC Programme Board, taking into account, factors such as its potential to deliver financial efficiencies and service improvement or provide opportunities to work collaboratively with other public sector partners.
However, over the course of the last year, the TIC Programme Board has determined that, due to the scale of the financial challenges that lay ahead of the council, the work of the TIC team should be focussed on larger scale transformation projects, where there would be the potential to deliver greater efficiency savings.
