iNetwork's Delivering Whole Systems Change

“The budget trend isn’t a sustainable position. We need to think very very differently about how we are delivering, holistically, in the systems within our localities” Steven Pleasant, Chief Executive of Tameside, Chair of iNetwork, May 2013.

“…another important facet for success is that leadership needs to be embedded throughout the organisation at all levels and empowered to cross all boundaries. Ultimately, the system is better represented as a network” Leadership of whole Systems, The King’s Fund, 2012.

“Much more will be heard about whole system working over the next few years, and much more will be demanded of those managing and working in inter-dependent domains. Doing nothing will not be an option.” Whole Systems Working, NHS, 2006

Why attend?

Sustainable delivery of effective local public services can only be achieved through holistic change. But how?

The concept of whole systems change is popular but elusive, however retreating within self-contained organisational entities is not an option – some but not all local public services organisations recognise this.

However tackling this kind complexity requires leadership at all levels, rethinking how and who delivers services, and building trust between partners.

iNetwork’s Winter Conference creates a space for colleagues to come together, learn with expert speakers and facilitators, and reflect with peers on these challenges and how we are, collectively, going to make this happen.

After a first plenary session, the remainder of the day will be spent in workshops or breakout sessions with multiple speakers.
