Office of National Statistics

“The UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics and the recognised national statistical institute of the UK”

“We collect, analyse, disseminate statistics about the UK’s economy, society and population”

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) asked Aspire’s Doug Osborne to come in and run a Strategic Planning training day for their team that head up the ONS strategy design. The day was framed to overview the pipeline from the big picture and the emotive drive of the high level vision right through to the action list on-the-ground day-to-day.

We had a small group of lifelong strategy experts – used to structuring the ONS focus on everything from where a hospital gets built, when a motorway gets expansion to all the political digits that inform policy, the media and the general public.

This small group of highly specialized and expert people were a delight. The day was fun and full of energy even though we asked difficult questions and really utilized the intimacy of a small team. We are delighted to continue our work with ONS into 2020.

Here are some quotes about from the feedback:

“Engaging exercises based on real need/examples”

“Hands on learning tailored to our org/team”

“Delivered in a relaxed interactive way.  Not death by PowerPoint!”
