Through this programme enhanced ICT and property modernisation projects will act as enablers, ensuring staff work more flexibly and collaboratively across services within KCC and with our partners, including better utilisation of management and information systems to shape provision around the customer. Property rationalisation will be a consequential benefit of delivering cultural change to working practices.
