Radical Efficiency

We offer those delivering public services a way to make between 20-60% cost savings and improve outcomes for service users at the same time. This is Radical Efficiency.

Significant spending cuts over the next few years are an unpleasant reality for those delivering public services. Leaders delivering public services are facing hugely difficult decisions. Taking bits out of the current system is not the only option.There are alternatives.

We offer those delivering public services a way to make between 20-60% cost savings and improve outcomes for service users at the same time - Radical Efficiency. It is not simply about improving current services, but creating new and different services with much better outcomes for the people you serve.

Our experience of working with local authorities on Radical Efficiency in practice has shown that the process can be mobilising and energising. Although timescales for cost-cutting are tight and the current environment is difficult and draining, Radical Efficiency offers practical steps and hope for something better. It helps public service professionals to pursue the mission that attracted them to their roles in the first place - it is a route to helping improve the quality of people's lives, even as cuts in spending are unavoidable.

Importantly Radical Efficiency is not an abstract theory. It is based on hundreds of well-evidenced examples of different, better, lower cost services and has been put into practice in the UK.
