The documents produced are useable, working texts that don’t just sit on the shelf. They have clear targets and review processes and are appropriate to the scale of your organisation.

The strategy has clear targets, including Local Public Service Agreements, and good performance management systems ensure that aims are understood and acted on at service and team level.
