08/02/11: Excited by radical efficiency
Who'd have thought it was possible for Caireen to get excited about numbers? But working with Julie Temperley and New Philanthropy Capital on an approach to demonstrating value for money in early years settings is proving to be a brilliant piece of work. It involves creating a toolkit and process to help the locality teams involved in the Radical Efficiency in Early Years programme look carefully at the costs of their new service ideas and compare this to the existing service based on unit costs. We're testing it in Bradford, Reading and Knowsley in the next couple of weeks so will see if they're as wowed by it all as we are.
