Transforming and Innovating Public Services
Welcome to our Transforming and Innovating Public Services (TIPS) Programme 2022/2023. The priorities and sub-priorities have been updated in consultation with the TIPS Network Leadership Group and reflect the pressures placed on the public sector as a result of the disruption caused by the pandemic. Our updated programme is designed to engage a range of professionals and organisations in the public, private, community voluntary and faith sectors.
Our key aim in continuing and advancing the priorities on the TIPS programme is to support high impact systemic change for people and places and to remain a relevant member led programme. It is focused on delivering improved outcomes through sharing knowledge and best practice on innovative citizen centred solutions that combine data, digital and culture.
We offer a selection of plenary sessions, round table discussions, leading speakers, opportunities to discuss local, regional and national challenges and more. Our events provide the platform to meet with colleagues, informally discuss priorities whilst creating opportunities for open and honest conversations in safe spaces. One of the intentions of this programme is to further strengthen the sense of community and harness the enthusiasm of the group to transform and innovate public services. We encourage you to take an active part in the TIPS programme, to make the most of discussions, networking and other opportunities.
The priorities listed below are interlinked and reflect the complex nature of innovation and change in public service delivery.
Priorities and Objectives for 2022-23
People and Place: This priority supports iNetwork’s members to creatively find people-centred sustainable solutions and approaches to navigate and access local public assets.
Digital Innovation: This priority supports iNetwork’s members to deliver the intelligence and prevention agenda by developing capabilities to make better informed decisions and utilising digital technology to improve lives.
Culture and Wellbeing: This priority supports iNetwork’s members to develop organisational change to achieve successful outcomes in the things that matter most to people, organisations and communities.
iNetwork allows you to share challenges and opportunities, making your working practices more efficient whilst developing a great support network from across the public sector
