  Vecta on Applying Technology in Public Services
  Applying technology to public services involves significant risk:
  • Will the specification, procurement and implementation process take so long that requirements change too much and costs spiral?
  • Will breaking the programme down into acceptable projects incur too much additional cost without delivering incremental outcomes?
  • Will sufficient users adopt the new approach so that cost and other savings are achieved as planned?

Just some of the questions that we can explore with you when you are considering applying technology to an existing or revised process.

  Our public sector services are based on several elements:
Vision-Led Strategy - to help you create a robust vision-led strategy
Aligning-Innovation-with-Strategy - to help you translate the big picture vision into practical process-led technology projects
Improving-Business-Effectiveness - to help you avoid unintended negative consequences of good intentions
Reducing Time to Value - to help reduce the big picture vision into smaller, lower-risk pieces that can be procured incrementally
Threat Intelligence - to help you avoid approaches which inherently increase vulnerability
Making Buy-Collaborate-Do Decisions - to help you decide what others can do for you and what you must do yourself
Restoring Order - and, when things do go wrong with a technology project, we can help you bring things back on track - quickly
Export-Invest Services - we also help overseas players to enter the UK market enriching your potential supplier base
  For example:

Our procurement support approach is based on several steps, each optional and customisable to your situation:

  • an initial free and confidential face-to-face, email or phone discussion of your ambition with informal feedback
  • a modest-cost, fixed-price review of your draft business plan including initial comments on the strategy, approach, key risks, necessary resources, business and technology partnerships, potential suppliers, etc
  • time-based support to develop the plan to mitigate risks, reduce timescales and increase chances of success
  • ad-hoc or interim representative support in UK as you take practical steps to implement the project

Our Strategy Experts Network is dedicated to exploring the key issues related to developments in business strategy. This involves projecting the evolution of market areas and approaches, identifying strategic business needs and understanding risk and achieving outcomes.
