  • Empower managers to innovate and be creative.
  • Develop and implement strategy and deliver our strategic objectives sustainably and in the public interest.
  • Look to the future.
  • Gather and share information and learning.
  • Ensure a ‘one council’ perspective is applied and on a consistent basis.
  • Connect, and jointly lead, with cabinet.
  • Challenge and scrutinise policy decisions leading to proper decision making and value for money.
