Addressing the challenges we have

Benchmarking helps us to understand where others are better, and therefore have successful ways of addressing the challenges we have.  We can then look to standardize and share with them.

Evidence-based approach

We use benchmarking to provide an evidence based approach to justify service improvement and value.  It helps us to defend against budget cuts and support business cases

Committed evangelist for the much wider use of Office 365

As a non-technical person the course provided me with a superb overview of the capabilities, functionality and practical application of Office 365 and its apps. As a result, I am now going to be a committed evangelist for the much wider use of 365 functionality in my organisation. Excellent and highly recommended.

An introduction to a wealth of functionality

There was a lot of information crammed into this five-day Change Agents programme. It was a great opportunity and introduction to a wealth of functionality, that we can use to improve the way that we work. Best of all, I’m now part of the Change Agents community of practice so this is just the beginning of the journey.

A fascinating to step outside of my comfort zone

It’s been fascinating to step outside of my comfort zone and regular arena of work and see at first-hand how systems are discussed, created, changed & developed and ultimately get rolled out through large organisations.

Anonymous Change Agents programme attendee

I absolutely loved my day in the forest planting oak and ash saplings for the Heart of England Forest. It’s humbling to realise these trees will be here long, long after I’ve gone! A great sense of satisfaction knowing I’m playing a small but important part in an initiative of such fundamental importance to the environment.

James Threapleton, Socitm Advisory, Business Development Director

Socitm Improve has helped many organisations to determine whether they were delivering their service in an efficient and productive manner. Participants have been able to inform their strategy by correcting or validating assumptions and identifying changes to benefit their users.
