Comment posted Council Leader, Councillors, CEO, Senior Officers: working relationships by newsroom.
This article in concerned only with performance management – an objective responsibility which has not previously been a notable feature in the operations of Argyll and Bute Council.
This laxity may itself have produced slack observation of responsibilities in the corporate management team.
Officers must be given the opportunity to show what they can do under a regime that demands integrity, competence and propriety, monitors performance and insists upon due process.
Should any then prove incapable of responding to these standards, that would be a point where, in any capable and well managed business, the question of their remaining in their posts would arise.
The past is the past. An enlightened regime which everyone hopes will seed a very different culture for public sector conduct in Argyll and Bute – at an individual and collective level, should have no care for retribution but every care for the calibre and correctness of performance now.

There is a council meeting on 22nd May where rival motions are likely to be advanced proposing specific pairings of Leader and Deputy Leader. The group with the greatest number of supporting councillors votes its choice through.
