Aberdeen City Council Capability Framework

Level 2

To do this effectively each of us needs to:

  • Play an active part in transformation, change and improvement – being comfortable with change and focusing on improvement
  • Play our part in digital transformation by being comfortable with technology, looking for ways technology can help us deliver better services and acting on sound evidence and information
  • Adopt a commissioning approach by taking responsibility for making sure public money is spent wisely on what is going to deliver the best outcomes for Aberdeen

BEHAVIOURS

What this looks like when we're at our best ...

  • We look at the evidence – then focus on making things better
  • We encourage new thinking and build on each other’s ideas
  • Every interaction counts – we leave things better than we found them
  • We embrace the new – we are creative and find ways to make things better
  • We are positive and ‘can-do’
  • We are the organisation – we promote the good things we do

What this looks like when we're at our worst...

  • Not willing to do things differently or move with the times
  • Ignoring issues
