Strategy and Policy

Many efficiency and collaborative projects fail because this area is often rejected or simply seen as a "tick box" exercise. "We need a procurement strategy" was heard in so many public sector organisations after the publication of the National Procurement Strategy by the (then) ODPM in 2003. Too often, however, the outcome was an unhelpful document that was not evidenced based and failed to integrate with the core service delivery plans.

SPS is adept at producing realistic strategy documents that can really fast track an organisation which needs early results, drawing both on our practical experience of what has worked well elsewhere in the sector,and our access to model policy papers that can be adapted and supported with business evidence.
