Continuous improvement networks

141125 resized photo for blog

Are you working as a Continuous Improvement/Lean or Pacesetter Practitioner and interested in sharing ideas with colleagues in other departments?

All departments need to ensure they are making the best use of resources to deliver value for money, in line with the Cross Government Continuous Improvement Plan we are establishing a network to put colleagues in touch with others who do similar work, to look at tools and techniques each department uses and to share best practice and expertise. The first meeting will be held in Cardiff and is for anyone within the south west and Wales however we recognize that the geography may prove problematical , so we may consider splitting this into two networks at a later date (1 for Wales and 1 for the south west).

If you are already working  in this area or looking to set something up in your department then email me to reserve a place on the first network meeting. More details will follow with the confirmed date to those that show an interest in joining.

    Hi Heidi! My name is Diane Morgan and I've recently moved to Cardiff, Wales from Wellington, New Zealand. I am a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt with 7 years' experience in business improvement and change management in NZ's public sector.

    I'm currently on contract at the International Baccalaureate as a BA but am keen to get back into a continuous improvement role -- and if possible back into the public sector which I feel really passionately about. Do you know of any public sector organisations in Cardiff that may be looking for someone with my skills? And/or I am wondering if I can join a CI network in Cardiff? I was reading this post of yours -- is this network only open to people currently employed in the Civil Service?

    Any help/information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
