LetchWood Business Management.
Project management can be a daunting prospect, particularly for the smaller organisation. So we have two objectives here, the first is to put project planning and project delivery on a more formal footing that will make it easier for the council to prioritise what it wants to do. The second is to allow the council to support the clerk in an appropriate manner that respects the different roles of Office and Council. You can do this by introducing a simple project planning system. This is not intended to be a complex or difficult affair, it is simply a way of dividing projects into simple phases and making sure the right person tackles the right part.
The distinction is important because there is a very clear difference in the
strategic role of the Council and the operational role of the Clerk.
Understanding this distinction will make it easy to manage projects in a
structured way and make it clear how the Council can support the Clerk without
taking part in operational issues.
