Transformation and Innovation Exchange

Responding to a call from councils, the LGA has created an online hub that brings together practical help for all those working in local government transformation.

Developed with local government, the Transformation and Innovation Exchange features a range of case studies, guidance, tools, performance data, training and other resources to help councils continue to deliver value for money and better outcomes for communities. This is an interactive space where councils can come together to share learning and support each other.

A key feature is an online self-assessment tool which helps councils identify their current capabilities and consider improvement opportunities and useful support. This could be done on a regular basis or as part of preparation for a corporate peer challenge.

Consideration is given to the following areas of governance and critical success factors:

  • Leadership of place and the role of the authority
  • Financial planning, viability and priority setting
  • Use of data and intelligence 
  • Use of digital and technology
  • Procurement and commissioning.
