“Transformation can be a daunting prospect for government and public sector organisations, in ways that are often very different from the private sector. As experienced transformation specialists, who combine extensive public sector experience with best practice gained from other sectors, we know how to navigate complexity to shape, manage or accelerate change. Berkeley’s consultants can partner with you to turn policy into real outcomes, on time and on budget.”

…in ways unique to each organisation. At Berkeley, we understand how to work within complex political environments that aren’t profit driven – from central or local government, to regulators, to education, health and other public sector bodies.
We know that your stakeholders can be multiple and diverse, including high status specialist practitioners and experts in their respective fields, who may be sceptical of consultants and ‘management speak’. We can help you to reach consensus and achieve meaningful outcomes.
Political agendas, multiple layers of governance, rapidly changing circumstances, and resource scarcity often combine to make action complex and challenging. Berkeley can help you bridge the gap between strategy and implementation.
Our government consultants have considerable experience in translating strategic direction and policy mandates into actionable change on the ground. We can partner with you to develop thoughtful, tailored solutions that get to the heart of what you want to achieve.
Within a government and public sector context, our people know how and when to adapt our approach to quickly build credibility and secure stakeholder engagement and buy-in. At Berkeley, we only deploy small teams of highly experienced consultants, who work as part of your senior team. They can engage strategically with senior stakeholders to build understanding and reach a common position, and successfully navigate any challenging organisational politics.
We recognise that budget and resources can be scarce within a public sector context, and that investment needs to deliver for the taxpayer. Our government consultants work effectively within resource and budget constraints, always focused on making a real impact, delivering value, and achieving lasting outcomes.
Public sector organisations are often very operationally focused and may not have the capacity to focus on a change agenda, or to build the required capability. If you’re concerned your organisation may not have deep enough transformation or project leadership expertise, Berkeley can help. We bring the perspectives and best practice gained from different sectors, as well as our expertise in government or public sector organisations, and work with you to adapt them to meet the needs of your organisation.
We never impose out-of-the-box solutions or methodologies. Our model is to work in partnership with our clients, building trusted relationships and collaborating on the approach that’s right for the organisation. By combining our strategy and transformation expertise with your specialist knowledge, we can bring out the best in your people and achieve results that make a real difference.

Berkeley helped to distil our requirements into a robust target operating model, providing effective challenge and best practice input at every stage of design. The support provided on change management has resulted in an integrated plan to deliver the target operating model as part of our recovery plan. The team have been a pleasure to work with and stepped up for us when we needed them – a testament to Berkeley Partnership’s client-centric approach.
