The Directors of Magus Toolbox Limited are founder members of The CREST Community (TCC).

TCC was formed by a group of independent consultants, all of whom have a wide experience of working with police forces and other public sector agencies.

The focus of TCC is to work with local agencies to help them apply systems thinking to the reduction of crime.

TCC has developed a radical new model for the delivery of local services.  This is expressly designed to help overcome the problems associated with fragmented local services - the opposite of ‘joined up Government’.  The goal is to help agencies escape from the trap of being limited to a level of service quality and results that arise through traditional structures and processes.

This leading edge project, conducted in collaboration with the Business School at the University of Westminster, and sponsored by the European Regional Development Fund and the London Development Agency, offered participating organisations a unique opportunity to receive a free assessment of their level of organisational resilience. Participants were able to identify opportunities to change key management practices that would result in improved organisational resilience.
