Co-creating and delivering a three-year organisational development plan
This NHS Clinical Commissioning Group approached us to design and execute an ambitious three-year board development plan.
Faced with seismic changes in the health sector locally and nationally, the CCG was clear that they did not want a standard curriculum. Instead, they were looking to co-create a dynamic, bespoke programme that properly took their organisation and their people into account.
Our current programme features sessions tailored to both board members and senior managers on:
- Strategic thinking
- Inclusive leadership
- Unconscious bias in decision-making
- Cultural adaptability and intercultural competence
- Managing conflict in procurement
- Inter-agency working
We also delivered a series of bite-size learning manuals to board members via our e-learning platform. These included practical guides to unconscious bias and the interviewing process.
We have been working with NHS Stockport CCG (and formerly Stockport NHS Foundation Trust) on a regular basis since 2010.
In addition to the board development work, we have also delivered targeted facilitated sessions for the senior management team.
“In my experience boards rarely respond well to mandatory training but the session run for us on equality and diversity by EW Group engaged, energised and enthused our most senior leaders and left them wanting more.”
