Purpose of Report: The report will provide an evaluation of the
Better Decision Making Tool (BDMT) which has been piloted across
the council directorates. The tool has been used for key council
decisions with the intention of improving the robustness of the
decision making process as well as maximising the positive impact
of any new proposals or change to services.
The Executive Member will be asked to approve some subtle changes to the wording and format within the tool.
This item has been deferred to the Decision Session on the 3 December 2018 in order to include in the report an additional proposal for further resources for the programme.
Resolved: (i) That the findings of the review be noted.
(ii) That approval be given to create a Project Officer post to support officers delivering capital projects and to lead key delivery projects.
(iii) That authority to make any further amendments to the tool be delegated to the Head of Corporate Strategy and City Partnerships and the Head of Programmes in the Economy and Place Directorate.
Reason: To ensure that there is capacity to deliver key projects around the One Planet agenda and to ensure that the usability of the tool continues to be improved and its impact maximised.
