      Summary
      • In 2004, the Gershon Review recommended that the Government pursue the sharing of services, including human resources, finance, procurement and payroll, to achieve cost savings. It has been up to individual departments to establish their own arrangements and, between 2004 and 2011, eight major shared service centres emerged. The five centres examined by the NAO were expected to cost GBP0.9 billion to build and operate but, to date, they have cost GBP1.4 billion. They were also expected to have saved GBP159 million by the end of 2010-11. While, in one instance Government has achieved break-even in a time consistent with the private sector, its overall performance has been varied and the two centres that are still tracking benefits report a measured net cost of GBP255 million. Most departmental customers have not acted as 'intelligent customers' and they will need to build in-house capability with enough business and technical understanding to manage the services and work with the centres to achieve efficiencies. Among other findings are that the software systems used in the centres have added complexity and cost; and that, as the use of the centres has been voluntary, departments have struggled to roll-out shared services fully across all their business units and arm's length bodies. The Cabinet Office has recently gained approval for a new strategy and business case. The NAO considers the approach is ambitious and has challenging timescales. The Cabinet Office is actively working with departments on its implementation.

      Summary
      • AbstractBackgroundHealth and social care services are under strain providing care in the community particularly at hospital discharge. Patient and carer experiences can inform and shape services.ObjectiveTo develop service user‐led recommendations enabling smooth transition for people living with memory loss from acute hospital to community.DesignLead and co‐researchers conducted semi‐structured interviews with 15 pairs of carers and patients with memory loss at discharge, 6 and 12 weeks post‐discharge and one semi‐structured interview with health and social care professionals and Admiral Nurses. Framework analysis was guided by co‐researchers. Two focus groups of study participants, facilitated by co‐researchers, met to shape and finalize recommendations.Setting and participantsRecruitment took place in acute hospitals in two National Health Service (NHS) Trusts in England. Patients were aged 65 and over, with memory loss, an in‐patient for at least 1 week returning to the community, who had a carer consenting to be in the study.ResultsPoor delivery of services caused considerable stress to some study families living with memory loss. Three key recommendations included a need for a written, mutually agreed discharge plan, a named coordinator of services, and improved domiciliary care services.Discussion and conclusionsVulnerable patients with memory loss find coming out of hospital after an extended period a stressful experience. The SHARED study contributes to understanding the hospital discharge process through the eyes of the patient and carer living with memory loss and has the potential to contribute to more efficient use of resources and to improving health outcomes in communities.

      Summary
      • Abstract: The implementation of a project to create a centre to streamline back-office functions - such as finance, HR and procurement - for the seven research councils has so far not been good value for money. When finally operational 15 months late, the Centre was delivering services across the five functions planned but some services, particularly finance, are not yet where they need to be. By the end of March 2011 the project was £51 million over budget. Available evidence indicates that to date the project has underachieved against total expected savings by at least £73 million. The original business case, which led to the decision to opt for the shared service centre, was flawed. The projected savings to be made from better procurement were uncertain and a proper financial analysis should have prompted a re-evaluation of the available options. The reasons for the overrun and delay included complex governance arrangements, slow decision making and the lack of a clear vision for the project from the outset. The contract with Fujitsu, the supplier of the Centre's ICT systems, was terminated wasting £13 million because some elements of the system then had to be rebuilt in-house. When the project did start to go off-course, the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, as sponsor Department, did not intervene. A single shared service platform has the potential, if managed effectively, to offer broader benefits through streamlined processes. The report concludes that there is significant scope for further savings.

      Summary
      • Abstract: The implementation of a project to create a centre to streamline back-office functions - such as finance, HR and procurement - for the seven research councils has so far not been good value for money. When finally operational 15 months late, the Centre was delivering services across the five functions planned but some services, particularly finance, are not yet where they need to be. By the end of March 2011 the project was £51 million over budget. Available evidence indicates that to date the project has underachieved against total expected savings by at least £73 million. The original business case, which led to the decision to opt for the shared service centre, was flawed. The projected savings to be made from better procurement were uncertain and a proper financial analysis should have prompted a re-evaluation of the available options. The reasons for the overrun and delay included complex governance arrangements, slow decision making and the lack of a clear vision for the project from the outset. The contract with Fujitsu, the supplier of the Centre's ICT systems, was terminated wasting £13 million because some elements of the system then had to be rebuilt in-house. When the project did start to go off-course, the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, as sponsor Department, did not intervene. A single shared service platform has the potential, if managed effectively, to offer broader benefits through streamlined processes. The report concludes that there is significant scope for further savings.

      Summary
      • Abstract: The Government has not in general measured the benefits delivered by its two central internet services Directgov and Business.gov, and the infrastructure service Government Gateway, which together cost some £90 million a year, according to a report today by the National Audit Office. Government departments and other public bodies use Directgov, Business.gov and Gateway to provide information to the public and to support a range of government online services. It is crucial that the Government Digital Service (GDS), established in March 2011 to implement a new strategy to deliver all government information services digitally, builds in the right mechanisms to achieve value for money as it plans the future of digital shared infrastructure and services. Today's report does conclude, however, that it is likely that Directgov, Business.gov and Gateway have delivered some cost savings to the public bodies which use them, through the reuse of common infrastructure. The public and businesses using the services have also benefited. Directgov (providing government information for the public) and Business.gov (a family of four services, one for each of the four nations of the UK, providing information for businesses) have enabled citizens and businesses to access information in a more organised way. Even though financial benefits are not clear, performance has been managed and most targets have been met. Since 2006, 1,526 government websites have been closed. Determining how successful the Government has been in closing websites has proved difficult, however, because the baseline numbers were based on an estimate and targets have changed over time. At the start, the Government was unsure how many sites it had and not all bodies have complied with the policy to close sites.

      Summary
      • An efficient and cost-effective HR function is essential to the successful running of any organization. And yet for many businesses it is impossible or costly to have HR staff in every office. This is particularly true for companies who have many branches, such as banks and building societies. So what are they to do? Increasingly they are turning to shared services by creating a unit within the organization that typically undertakes personnel administration and basic operational support. This may be delivered to managers and employees through some combination of call centre, personal contact or intranet. Creating a shared services centre enables the HR function to redefine its relationship with its stakeholders. It can become more of a strategic player and make a more business-focused contribution. This book explains what shared services are and what they look like for the HR function. It describes why organizations opt for shared services and what activities are included. It sets out the relationship between shared services and the other HR activities, and between HR and line management. How To Get Best Value From HR outlines the process of introducing shared services, from identifying customer needs through designing the structure to implementation and monitoring. It also outlines the likely pitfalls and, importantly, offers possible solutions. In particular the book highlights the big design issues, including whether to outsource services, where a shared services centre should be located, how services should be delivered and organized, including through the option of e-HR. Crucially it features an extended case study of the Royal Bank of Scotland's experience of introducing HR shared services, providing a unique insight into the reality of this new way of working.
      • Review: 'This is a useful book because it provides new perspectives on the organizational experiences of shared services.' People Management Website 'This book covers a lot of ground in 152 pages, giving the reader a thorough overview without getting bogged down in detail. And as such it is a valuable source of information for anyone challenged with investigating the viability of a share service approach...a worthwhile investment.' Personnel Today

      Enabling intermodal urban transport through complementary services: From Flexible Mobility Services to the Shared Use Mobility Agency.

      Summary
      • AbstractThis paper explores the potential contribution that the public transport Agency can make to the emerging Mobility as a Service (MaaS) paradigm through the integration of regular collective transport services with complementary flexible transport schemes and other forms of shared-use transport. The latest ICT developments provide new opportunities to organise and offer collective and individual mobility services. In the evolving scenario of the service sharing economy we see this with a number of new mobility schemes–e.g. vehicle sharing and dynamic ride sharing schemes like Car2Go, DriveNow, BlaBlaCar, Uber, Lyft. We define a Flexible and Shared Use Mobility (FSUM) Agency; a single co-ordination centre of different flexible services and shared mobility schemes, which requires co-ordination and co-operation among different service providers, the integration of data and platforms, technical services and systems. The fundamental enabling technologies and standards are illustrated and the supporting ICT architecture outlined. Finally, the organisational aspects related to the operation of the Agency are discussed and illustrated with reference to the EC-funded PERHT project.
