Customer Insight

Organisations that are successful in meeting the increased expectations of customers within the constraints of reduced expenditure have realised that it is necessary to focus on the needs of citizens, rather than the needs of the organisation, if they are to succeed in providing good quality services.  Circles of Need® transformation methodology provides public sector bodies with the opportunity to:
  • save money and improve services to customers by understanding their needs and amending the delivery journey to be more proactive, ensuring needs are met and public service providers are more joined up across organisational boundaries
  • better focus your limited resources on the citizens that are most in need
  •  increase the relevance of your strategic objectives to your citizens using customer insight
Acareo work in association with Aperia Limited to provide tailored support for improving outcomes for your priority citizen groups using their needs as a starting point for understanding services, process and contributions to those needs and how to change what you do for those citizens and how you do it.

Stakeholder Management

Stakeholder management is critical to the success of every project or programme in every organisation we have ever worked with. By engaging the right people in the right way in your project or programme, you can make a huge difference to its success.

Stakeholder Management

Stakeholder Management doesn’t just happen – it needs planning and managing like any other task. It is a specialist area all too often overlooked in the rush to deliver products and work-packages. However, change doesnt happen easily but it happens much more easily if you take people with you on the journey, you know who your advocates and blockers are and have clear strategies for engaging with stakeholders and key messages to get across.
We offer a training course on stakeholder management; based upon our own experiences and those of others we offer a number of techniques and tools that the project or programme team can utilise to make stakeholder management less haphazard thus increasing the chances of successful outcomes. If required we can also work alongside your team to ensure that stakeholder management is embedded within your programme.

Benefits Realisation

Benefits RealisationThe purpose of change should always be the realisation of benefits. It is therefore worth investing the time and energy in:-
  • identifying a comprehensive set of benefits
  • classifying and validating them
  • creating high quality robust benefits maps
  • determining high priority paths
  • securing ownership
  • assessing impact on stakeholders (including disbenefits)
Don’t be deflected from keeping the main thing the main thing
We offer a one day in-house Benefits Realisation training course for senior management, programme managers, project managers, analysts and other managers of change.
We can also work alongside you to quickly ensure that your programmes and major projects are built upon solid foundations – focus on the main thing – which should be an outcome, not delivering products.
