Activity will be underpinned by a volunteer mentoring programme that will cover all areas of SCR.  Businesses will be offered a Business Mentor who will help them achieve their goals, focusing on individual need and requirements.

This support will inform and be additional to a formal external evaluation which will be subject to a separate tender. The successful applicant will liaise with consultants who are to be appointed to undertake a mid-term programme evaluation in 2017 and a final programme evaluation in 2018/19.

BMBC has undertaken initial work to align programme management procedures and processes and delivery of the Barnsley element of business start up support to accord with ISO 9001 (2015) quality assurance standards. Certification has not been applied for at this stage.  

Programme monitoring is completed by all partners and reported to BMBC through the use of a client relationship management system. This process monitors programme beneficiaries and contracted outputs. This is predominantly quantitative, based on aspects such as individuals supported, new businesses created, business survival rates and job creation.

Continuous Programme Development (CPD) support is sought in the 1st quarter of the programme so that early evaluation and learning can be achieved to improve the quality of the programme. It is considered essential to monitor and review the implementation of process improvements ensuring that implementation is fully effective and that all the projected benefits are achieved.

We are working to ensure that Continuous Improvement becomes the default way of thinking for the SCR Launchpad Programme enabling the delivery of priorities more efficiently and effectively

THE PROVISION OF A BARNSLEY LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME FOR THE COUNCIL

Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council | Published December 5, 2014  -  Deadline January 9, 2015
cpvs
79633000, 80532000


Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (the Council) is seeking to commission a Leadership Programme linked to our vision, values and Future Council characteristics.  The programme will ensure that our leaders are able to drive forward and manage the change needed to become a sustainable Future Council and will help us to achieve our priorities.

 

We are looking for a provider who can partner with us to deliver a leadership programme which will enable us to make a step change in moving the culture of our organisation significantly towards our Future Council.  We would like to hear from providers who will challenge our thinking and focus us externally so that we naturally look to find cutting edge, leading practice from wherever we can find it and transfer it here.

 

We have recently reshaped our organisation into business units and we recognise that our leaders will need significantly different skills if they are to deliver our priorities successfully in the future - running a business unit on a sound commercial and/or financial footing is fundamentally different to running a service and we need to equip our leaders with the ability to do that well.  Our aspiration is to be amongst the very best Councils and we see this programme as being crucial in our ability to achieve that, so the stakes are high.

 

We want and need our leaders to be able to understand and adapt to a complex and rapidly changing local government environment - one that is significantly different.  If you can help us to enable our leaders to drive forward change and implement a new way of working based on our new business models and plans then we are excited to hear your proposals.
