We specialise in creating significant and sustainable value streams within housing organisations
The challenges we will help you overcome
Both public and private housing organisations (whether local authority, housing associations or corporate house building companies) have had little choice but to embrace operational for many years now, while reacting to an evolving consumer demand for all housing sectors, coupled with regular changes in governmental and legislative requirements.
The current and anticipated pressures facing the sector means that organisations, both large and small, must truly ensure they continuously focus on being both efficient and effective.
Strong strategic leadership must translate to aligning activities in the best way to deliver customer-focused services to tenants and leaseholders during uncertainties and pressures around supplier material costs, availability of land and consumer pressure on available funds to rent/purchase.
To continue to deliver effectively and efficiently requires an effective strategy of change. While many organisations in the industry are busy implementing their strategies, with ageing populations, ever-increasing regulations and vastly different geographic customer requirements across the UK and Europe, a concurrent continuous improvement programmes is essential too to stay abreast of these shifting sands. The over-riding requirement is (or should be) to focus on up-skilling middle and senior management to engage the entire workforce in these programmes.
From our experience and constant interaction with this market, continuous improvement has stopped being simply good practice and actually become an unswerving necessity.
