A revitalised IT department driving £1.2 million annual savings

Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary wanted to improve the performance of their joint ICT department – with a particular focus on freeing up leadership time and generating energy to overcome embedded issues.

Illuminet began by watching – observing the team at work to understand the root causes of the productivity problem. The pattern of high workloads, demands on leaders for meetings and less time to focus on getting to the root cause, left IT needing to find a new way to lift service.

A 90-day Rapid Improvement Spin Cycle methodology was deployed to turn things around. Energy and enthusiasm returned, teamwork improved and a new desire to drive continuous improvement appeared within the leadership team. Efficiency improvements followed in Repeat Incidents, Repeat Requests, IT Risks and Operational Disciplines. All contributing to annual savings in excess of £1.2m or the equivalent of 24 bobbies on the beat.

Improving the performance of Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary joint ICT department by freeing up leadership time and generating energy to overcome embedded issues.

Illuminet has worked with the Public Sector since our launch in 2009.

“I had no hesitation in asking Illuminet to bid to work with me to develop an independent business case setting out the opportunities to realise the vision in my strategy. The final business case and supporting documentation which was carried out in conjunction with another business partner, Bolderwood … the Illuminet team provided most of the resources for the delivery and worked in a truly collaborative way to make the project successful. In parallel to the business case development Illuminet also supplied a number of technical resources to support service … Illuminet have consistently delivered high quality people and outcomes to me. Based on my experience over a number of years in a wide variety of engagements I would have no hesitation in recommending them”
