It is common that local governments struggle to deliver a range of services for a whole variety of reasons, whether managers may be time poor, have limited human resources at their disposal to deliver budgeted programs, and the constant ‘doing more with less’.  

If you or members of your team are under such pressures, then Leo Jensen Consulting can assist.
