City of Ottawa - Service Excellence Program

The City has developed a Service Excellence Plan, which will fundamentally transform how residents receive services from the City. It is a plan to deliver consistent, predictable, high quality information and services to our residents and to generate significant savings to the organization. Service Excellence is about changing the way services are received and perceived by the customer. In order for this to occur, the City must change the processes behind the service delivery to ensure that they focus on customer needs. All services within the City will be reviewed and revised based on the Service Excellence lens. Each department is responsible for developing individual service excellence plans which will transform their business to better meet the needs of their customers.  The City is implementing 9 corporate service excellence projects ranging from implementing a Corporate Sponsorship program to revising the way Citizen’s can access City services
LeverageTek has worked with multiple customers providing Business Analysis expertise on a variety of programs and projects.  Through this experience, we successfully responded to the Business Analysis category for the Service Excellence Services program.  LeverageTek is now a Standing Offer holder for this category.
