Public School is a non-profit consultancy that works with public sector organizations to solve critical operational challenges.
Our mission is to enable organizations to deliver more effective, efficient, easy-to-use, and equitable public services.
1. Work on BIG challenges.
We're attracted to helping organizations tackle problems that staff don't have time to solve—like procurement, hiring, and reducing paperwork.
2. Focus on the impact.
We enable teams to remove operational obstacles so that they can get back to focusing on their core mission: delivering effective public services.
3. Engage staff as experts.
Staff are an organization's most important asset. We believe in engaging staff as experts throughout the entire problem-solving process.
4. Create simple solutions.
We like to keep things simple. We'll work to reduce complexity in your organization and create solutions that are pragmatic and easy to implement.
