In the context of the economic crisis affecting all European countries, there is increased public demand for State intervention in different economic sectors, as well as the need to strengthen capabilities in traditional areas. Paradoxically, the public finances of these countries, the requirements of EU membership and the constraints linked to globalization limit the financial capacity of the State to intervene. This cyclical situation increases the pressure on public expenditure that is structurally high, despite some diversity between countries.
States have engaged in large scale modernization programs to contribute to a balance in public finances and to provide a better service to users and to increase efficiency. These programs cover different aspects such as the simplification of procedures, increased consideration of users, development of steering and evaluation of public policy, and streamlining administrative structures and mobility in the management of public servants.
In this context, our operations cover several dimensions such as adapting the mission and goals of the State to the new challenges, especially Ministry reforms and evaluation of public policies; modernizing and simplifying administration organization and procedures; implementing strategic projects of State structures with management by objectives and Balanced Score Cards; mobilizing public employees by valuing their work and experiences.
To achieve the successful modernization of central administrations, our approach combines the best practices from both the commercial sector and European administrations and the pragmatism in the implementation of reforms tailored to the unique context of each administration.
At EUROGROUP CONSULTING, we help central administrations of European States in their major modernization projects, from the conception of State reform to the achievement of concrete results.
