The workshop (3 March, at Yorks & Humber Benefits Network - agenda listed in next blog) went swimmingly - benefits identified; defined; projects linked; realism and pragmatism. It must be emphasised that this is normally the first of three workshops.
- make best use of the specific skills of defining a benefit, how it will be measured and how aggregated
- engage service delivery staff (whether clinical/ care trained or in supporting or management roles) in defining/ selecting the benefits their success will be measured by
- encourage senior staff to use the measures and benefits defined by the services themselves, as they are easy to aggregate to report across a whole workstream (because they are all defined the same way) and clearly bring benefits to service users, clinical outcomes, staff and the financial bottom line
- book a meeting with the workstream SRO and sponsor, and key poeple who can arrange to take this approach across the whole workstream
- set a date for the first workshop (this agenda), apply to me (email@example.com) for more information
- run the workshop, get the results, and set dates for the two follow-up workshops
