Self-awareness begins with a well-thought-out and shared belief on what the government should be addressing. You also see self-awareness in the role the government plays and carves out for itself. They position themselves as committed and able to connect with social partners to address widespread public issues.
CORDES has long advised the government on issues relating to strategy, organisational design and performance. Such advice also brings up questions about the government's fundamental responsibilities and roles, particularly in the light of drastic cuts.
CORDES helps change perspectives, co-create, discover and realise new opportunities in the organisation of policy and responsibilities for society. Social impact is the key focus of CORDES' approach, not the existing relationships and structures. We are searching for smart partnerships, for policy and implementation opportunities that strengthen the impact, be it municipal collaborations/mergers, new structures in which government and social partners collaborate, or internal improvement programmes within governments.
