CT Management Group Service Planning

Supported by our suite of products and decades of sector experience, CT Management Group supports councils challenged with questions such as:

Are services provided by Council aligned to the strategic direction?  
For Service X, what is the right level of service to provide to the community?
Can Council afford to maintain current services levels moving forward?

Our Service Planning process provides a strategic approach to review:

  • the range of services your Council provides (alignment)
  • define the levels of service provided (level)
  • and establish the cost of providing these services (cost)

Our independently facilitated process (other service approaches available) is proven to deliver timely, objective and powerful insights for the universal dilemma of mounting pressures upon councils limited resources whilst community service expectations increase unchecked.

Service Planning once completed equips councils with a purposeful framework towards deep-diving (service reviews) and broader input sought (community engagement) as councils seeks to remain financially sustainable and continue to provide key services and infrastructure to the communities they serve.

Service Planning outcomes include:

  • Qualitative data via detailed reports (service plans);
  • Financial Sustainability insights (long term financial scenarios); and
  • Independent and impactful service planning recommendations & next-steps.
