📢Sector News

The Housing Ombudsman highlights failings from 8 landlords in a new approach to sharing learning. This report aims to pinpoint these failings across the range of issues the Ombudsman handle, and the learning the landlord involved has undertaken since determination, in order to help landlords answer a question: what would we have done differently?


Richard Blakeway, Housing Ombudsman, said: “It is important that vital learning is not lost because of the sheer volume of findings, and we urge everyone in social housing to read this, from frontline officers to those sitting around the board table. When you group these severe maladministration cases like we have, you can plainly see that complaints cannot be only seen as operational, but something that impacts every area of the business."

John is a thought leader in helping organisations to study and understand customer demand. In this book, Seddon advocates for a shift towards a more customer-centric approach to management.

At the heart of Seddon's philosophy is the concept of understanding and meeting customer demand effectively. He emphasises the importance of identifying and addressing the root causes of failure demand. The book advocates for a paradigm shift away from traditional hierarchical structures towards more customer-focused approaches that prioritise continuous improvement and innovation.
