Strategic commissioning is something that virtually all councils talk about – but few have really cracked how to do it well. A commissioning function is about commissioners using commissioning strategies to develop outcome-based specifications for the services that will deliver these outcomes; and to identify the capability to execute the
specification in the most efficient and effective way possible.
While this is an efficient way to deliver services, it relies on attracting an exceptionally high quality of commissioning staff. We help staff teams learn about the process and language, ensuring everyone is at the same level of understanding. We can then facilitate joined up working across different services within organisations and achieving clearer focus on success.
