What We Do

iESE Transformation

Created by local authorities as a shared resource for the sector, we have a successful track record of delivering transformation and service improvement programs in the UK. By doing so, we have delivered more than £1bn of savings for our clients.

iESE Digital Innovation

A category at the forefront of service transformation is a digital approach to service delivery. We have thus created a hub for digital tools and technology to help local authorities improve public service delivery.

iESE Best Practice

Our mission is to advance the improvement and or efficiency of local public services​. With the loss of government funding local public services are being reinvented. Sharing best practice has never been so important; learning from each other reduces the cost of change and increases the likelihood of success.

The Public Sector Transformation Awards

An opportunity to celebrate and share the most innovative practice in transforming local public services.  For all us in local government, developing new ways of working and transforming service delivery is our passion.

Innovation Club

 The iESE Innovation Club provides an independent arena for public bodies to network, hear and learn from sector experts, industry leaders and, most importantly, its own members.

White Paper Research

As part of the iESE mission, we are constantly working towards sharing best practice, and one way we do this is through the collaboration and creation of white papers.

Transform Magazine

We created Transform as a source of information to share helpful advice and showcase public service transformations in alignment with our goal of sharing best practice across the public sector. 

Certificate of Excellence

The Certificate of Excellence recognises and champions examples of innovation and best practice in the public sector. You can apply for one at any time as they are open all year round.

Innovation is in our DNA
