How skefto Helps Councils with Strategic Planning
Tightly Align all Plans
Align the vision of the Community with Council plans and finances.
skefto provides a simple way to break down strategic plans, into lower level plans that map out day to day tasks.
Enhance Culture & Maturity
We don’t believe software alone is enough to drive a positive outcome! The delivery of a strategy requires all people to be moving in the same direction. Further, all staff should be working with a consistent strategic planning process. Above all staff should focus on a common vision and achieving a common set of goals.
We work with our customers to understand maturity levels and to identify the culture required to deliver a positive outcome. As a result, we employ high quality trainers that have worked for many years with LGs to deliver education and training. We provide end to end solutions that educate our customers in the area of strategy, planning, and use of KPIs.
Meet your Strategic Planning and Performance Reporting obligations by reporting on the progress of Council plans and service KPIs. Enable data backed decision making and improve the quality of data to allow for easier auditing, certification, and annual reporting.
All Planning in 1 Spot
skefto provides a 1 Stop Shop to house all plans (e.g. Council, Workforce, Asset, Finance, Public Health etc). Furthermore, skefto provides a simple way to build up plans that consist of goals, results, outcomes, actions, and KPIs.
Innovate and grow by adapting and responding to change whilst considering the needs of your community and your LGs capacity. skefto provides best in class tools that allow LGs to be agile.
As a result, LGs are firstly better placed to deliver strategic change. Secondly, they are able to improve through a system of learning. And finally, LGs are able to align different strategies being rolled out at the same time.
Improve Service Performance

Integrated Strategic Planning and Reporting Framework (ISPRF)
The new Local Government Act 2020 requires councils to take a principles based approach for strategic planning and performance reporting. As a result the aim is to avoid the previous prescriptive nature of strategic planning and reporting. Rather Government will work with councils to identify and design the supports required to implement the provisions of the Act.
Local Government Act – 6 Challenges for Councils

Above all, for this to occur officers, managers, executive teams, auditors, committees, and Council must align. Below are some of the key challenges being faced by the sector to meet the requirements of the Local Government Act and how software could provide an answer to these challenges.
