Subject: Comment on CS Transform


To whom it may concern


The purpose of this “statement of use” is to explain how the British Council has worked with consulting firm CS Transform Limited to deploy key elements of the Transformational Government Framework (TGF) in helping to shape and deliver our organisation’s strategy.  References to the TGF are to the TGF Pattern Language Core Patterns Version 1.0 Committee Specification 01 dated 11 January 2012.


The British Council is the UK’s International body for educational and cultural relations.  We are a £750 million plus turnover organisation, working with millions of people every year in six continents and over 100 countries to create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and to build trust between them worldwide. We create opportunity by sharing English, education, the Arts, and helping to deliver on the UK’s commitment to International Development and sharing ways of living and organising society.


Over recent years, we have been going through a major programme of change, transitioning from a set of locally-driven and heterogeneous country strategies, to an integrated, organisation-wide strategy.  That strategy is focused on entrepreneurial growth – in both income earned and impact delivered – though in the face of declining grant funding from the UK government. 


CS Transform Limited is a consulting firm appointed following competitive tender to a Strategic Consultancy Framework with the British Council, and through this framework we have contracted with CS Transform to deliver several strategic consulting assignments.  In delivering these assignments, CS Transform has deployed the TGF to help meet our needs.  For example:

  • CS Transform drew on TGF Core Pattern 8 (“Roadmap for Transformation”) when developing the British Council’s roadmap for transforming our global operations network
  • CS Transform used TGF Core Pattern 9 ( “Brand-led Service Delivery”) when advising the British Council on development of a brand-led approach to increasing the British Council’s profile and participation
  • CS Transform used the Benefits Mapping approach recommended by TGF Core Pattern 20 (“Benefits Realization”) to develop an overall benefit map showing how British Council inputs flow through to our programme outputs and ultimately to achievement of our strategic outcomes and organisational purpose.


This work has been of high quality and has made a significant strategic impact on our work.


Yours faithfully,


John Worne
