Administration and structures

Organisational structures define the powers and responsibilities of management and the sharing and organisation of work. A functioning management system promotes good governance and cooperation across organisational boundaries, and prevents the emergence of blind areas of responsibilities and conflicts. 

Clear management and organisational structures bring efficiency and enable management with their impact. Our experts consult on the assessment and reorganisation of municipal management systems and organisations. They have extensive practical knowledge of various urban management systems and organisational solutions. 

Our flexible team of experts always works in close cooperation with customers. 

Reforming municipal structures requires realistic determination of resources and opportunities, and rigorous management of the change process.

Municipal management systems, evaluations, comparisons and development

We provide support for evaluating and further developing municipal management systems. We have wide-ranging experience in municipal management systems and trends related to their changes. Consulting is organised according to each customer’s needs, and working methods are planned accordingly.

In addition to consultancy regarding structures, we offer support for the evaluation and development of the work of institutional bodies. The conditions for effective management can also be improved by strengthening the common understanding of practices such as interaction and communication. In a changing environment, the importance of networks and relationships with municipal inhabitants, for example, is highlighted.
