Our ambition is to create a network that will best serve our region by bringing together people with knowledge and know-how in the areas of change, improvement, and transformation.
Once up and running it is anticipated that this network would both plan and deliver a series of workshops/events to share our knowledge with others and build capability for many of our departments and colleagues.
In order to do this I am looking to create a small steering group to help me design what this should look like. Members of this group will need to bring with them knowledge, enthusiasm, a bit of free time, and the capacity to participate in a series of workshops so that we can plan how best to take this forward. For clarity I am looking more broadly than just people with experience in the traditional Lean or Continuous Improvement backgrounds. Our world and the way we deliver change has moved on quite a bit over the last few years and the way we classify improvement is now a lot broader.
If you have knowledge in change, improvement, or transformation then you are very much the type of person I'm trying to reach.
As this is a steering group, I am looking for people with current or recent knowledge and experience in this area as we need a membership than can contribute.
I am a big believer in the value of regional networks and have benefited personally from the opportunity to both identify and work with colleagues who have similar roles, challenges, and priorities to the ones that I am tasked to lead on each day.
So if you are interested in developing yourself and others, networking, and working with other government departments then please get in touch with Scott Johnson detailing your experience and what you could bring to the network.
I very much look forward to working with you in what I hope you will agree is a really exciting piece of work.
