Public Sector

As an independent advisor, we work in close partnership with Local Authorities, Central Government Departments, and many Non Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs) including the National Health Service, Police Forces, Fire and Rescue Services, Housing Associations, Universities and Colleges and Environmental Agencies.

We work in close collaboration with public sector organisations in pursuit of clearly defined and mutually shared objectives. Our mission is to ensure you are able to raise the quality of life for your citizens within the community through you continually evolving and improving your delivery of services. We help you to increase effectiveness and to derive more value through successful implementation of organisational change.

Who should be talking to us and why? Any public sector organisation representative who relates to any of the issues listed below:

  • Organisational Change : Undertaking organisational change and wants support with formulating and evaluating options and feasibility.
  • Improve Outsourcing Performance : Evaluating how to improve the performance of existing partnership agreements and major change initiatives.
  • Shared Services : Determining whether to share services with a neighbouring authority and if so, how to ensure the sharing arrangements are successful and equitable for everyone involved.
  • Reducing Total-Cost-of-Ownership : Need to improve service delivery, but yet reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of delivering that service?
  • Compelling Business Cases : Preparing ‘member-friendly’ business cases for major change projects.
  • Existing Contracts and Agreements : Re-evaluation and re-negotiation of existing contractual arrangements for major projects where performance does not align to your expected business outcomes.
  • Independent Health Check : Ready to move ahead with launching a strategic initiative, project or supplier agreement but want to have an independent evaluation prior to committing to the next step?
  • OJEU Frameworks : Need help with the various OJEU frameworks such as competitive dialogue?
  • Project Management: Using popular frameworks such as Prince2 and ITIL in vanilla form can inadvertently undermine your project.

The majority of public sector organisations and NDPBs are facing the inevitable “need to change”. This is often driven by reducing grants and settlements. The pressure to make ends meet is ever increasing. Many Local Authorities are therefore considering how to change; whether re-organising internal service delivery or deciding whether outsourcing (in its many forms) might help closer align its expected business outcomes.

Finding and evaluating your options to increase your citizens experience, improving your service delivery but at the same time reducing the costs of the service is a challenge most public sector organisations are facing. Everything from defining business objectives, identifying key performance measures, analysing your operational work flows to evaluating and negotiating a contract with an external partner can be an uphill struggle demanding specialist knowledge. Enter BPG, your specialist organisational change advisor. We provide unique insight that turns challenging hurdles into realistically achievable and positive outcomes.

Private sector

We work in close partnership with many private and public (stock exchange listed) companies spanning most of the UK’s business sectors including manufacturing, distribution, retail, financial, legal, construction, civil engineering and other professional services organisations.

We work in close collaboration and facilitate organisational change, outsourcing, procurement and deployment of projects.

BPG has historically been regarded by the private sector as the premier project turn-around organisation. Frequently we have been asked by organisations to perform independent reviews and health checks of under performing projects or supply agreements, including business process outsource (BPO), shared services and outsourcing agreements.

Who should be talking to us and why? Any representative from the company who relates to any of the issues listed below:

  • Organisational Change : Undertaking organisational change and wants support with formulating and evaluating the feasibility of different options.
  • Improve Outsourcing Performance : Evaluating how to improve the performance of existing partnership agreements and major change initiatives.
  • Shared Services : Determining whether to share services with other divisions and if so, how to ensure the sharing arrangements are successful and equitable for everyone involved.
  • Reducing Total-Cost-Of-Ownership : Need to improve service delivery, but yet reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of delivering that service?
  • Compelling Business Cases : Preparing business cases for major change projects.
  • Existing Contracts and Agreements : Re-evaluation and re-negotiation of existing contractual arrangements for major projects where performance does not align to your expected business outcomes.
  • Independent Health Check : Ready to move ahead with launching a strategic initiative, project or supplier agreement but want to have an independent evaluation prior to committing to the next step?
