A one-day programme for the senior leadership team at Derby Homes. They manage and control over 13,000 properties on behalf of Derby County Council. Tangram Training were engaged to help the senior leadership work closer together, utilise their strengths annd broaden their skill set in their new commercial world.
Derby Homes Limited is an arm’s length management organisation (ALMO) created by Derby City Council to manage, maintain and improve its council houses and estates. The organisation is non-profit making and it does not pay dividends to any shareholders. It is 100% owned and controlled by Derby City Council.
In April 2002 responsibility for managing council homes in Derby moved from Derby City Council over to Derby Homes, along with over 300 staff from the then Council’s Housing Services Department.
The senior leadership team responsible for all staffing, budgeting and housing stock had been thrust into the commercial world from the relative calm of local authority. This faster and more challenging pace had put strains on the team.

“Thanks for a great day. The two of you certainly challenged our way of operating and thinking, which I’m sure will be most useful as we take the organisation forward“
