Are your Finance, Procurement, HR or Payroll systems outdated? Or have you moved to Cloud systems, but aren't maximising their full potential? Are you midway through your implementation and worried that you won't get your desired outcome? Maybe you lack the capacity or capabilities to do so? Are you facing increasing uncertainty, ever shifting priorities, the need to deliver fast paced change with less resources?
At Socitm Advisory, we are experts in transformation in local government. We have worked with many city, county, borough and district councils since our formation 7 years ago, and understand the importance of changing processes, organisation design and behaviours alongside technology to provide excellent services.
Define strategy and roadmap
Helping organisation to determine their desired outcomes and service improvement priorities for relevant professional functions, aligned to Council Plan and informed by a comprehensive understanding of the current technology, and wider operating models.
Set the foundations for success
Develop a Strategic Case for Change - by supporting you to demonstrate the drivers, and the risks including assessment of ongoing costs, contract end dates, and maintenance.
Create an Options Appraisal and Outline Business Case (OBC) - we can help you consider realistic options to help you make decisions on your future systems, processes, operating model, likely benefits and prepare for your OBC.
Programme design and mobilisation - by designing the makeup of your programme, defining the structure, assessing readiness for change, and agreeing roles and responsibilities.
We can help you achieve the right outcomes for you
Whether that be small, incremental improvements to technology, process or the way our service operates to maximise the use of your current solution, or to help to select/upgrade and implement a solution. We can help in either situation.
Service design - user centric design of processes and services, working through customer journeys and aligning operating model components to fix wicked problems.
Rapid process redesign - a sharp and short review of your current processes, redesigned to improve quality, efficiency and reducing costs.
Existing solution development roadmap - we can review your existing Finance, HR and Procurement solutions to see if you're maximising their use and have the knowledge and capabilities to continuously improve in alignment to their functionality enhancements.
Upgrade/select a new solution
Commercial and procurement support - helping you define your requirements, select the right route to market and preparing your tender.
Preparing to select your partner - we can help you with your tender exercise reviews and making the right decisions.
Implementation phase support
Be the partner who'll be with you every step of the way, providing advice and delivering capabilities for those areas you need support in.
Project and programme management - we can bring our skills to ensure delivery to time and quality.
Change management - we can be there for all aspects of change management including changes to your organisational structure, delivery of learning, embedding culture changes, and communications.
Technical expertise - we can lead or support you through the trickier aspects of our ERP solution implementation, such as managing.
Embed, scale, improve and refocus
Go live and beyond - we can help you focus on stabilisation and optimisation.
Maximise your investment - assess what functionality you implemented, what hasn't been implemented, and how to maximise the benefits of your investment through embedding of ways of working, behaviours or alignment of operating models.

"During Covid-19, as classroom training was no longer a viable option, the team were able to deliver training and awareness which was very effective.
Socitm Advisory provided coaching and mentoring for the council's own staff, leaving a legacy of professionally experienced business change and project managers."
