Bucks County Council granted ABS licence with emergency services group - TRIZ Triumph!

TRIZ was used to identify methods for significantly cutting costs for Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC). The Legal and Democratic Services (LDS) had been tasked to increase their services while reducing their cost to BCC from its present high level to zero, then to reverse this further by paying BCC from new high profits. LDS developed the “Bucks LDS Model” with the assistance of Oxford Creativity, which aims to reduce corporate funding, increase external revenue and improve efficiencies to achieve this. TRIZ was used to understand the problem, and develop the model, which will reduce the corporate funding to LDS to zero within 3 year. BCC LDS will be the first local authority in the UK to develop and market their Democratic Services team. Read more on Legal Business blog.
