At planning workshops people with an interest in the improvement work meet together share information and come up with a plan for how the work can be done.
Workshops are usually run by a facilitator and involve lots of discussion.
Why use it
Service improvement work is often defined by what an organisation wants to do and/or what it thinks will work. This tool invites you to take a bigger picture and longer term view of the health conditions and services you are working with.
When to use it
Use this tool when you need to plan out how you are going to do your service improvement work.
A planning workshop will help you:
- Understand where to focus your efforts. In particular, it helps clarify what your organisation can and should do, what it can do but is not a priority, and what it can?t do that remains important
- Build a robust and focused plan for your service improvement work
- Ensure the plan is clearly understood by the project team and stakeholders
- Get buy-in and ownership from everyone early on.
