Making a case for change

Making a case for change

Drawing on experiences and what has been discussed in previous sessions, it's time to construct a case for improvement.

Aims of this session ​

  • To be able to construct and present a logical case for change, that is supported by appropriate research and evidence, in order to seek solutions and improvements to services.
  • To feel confident in presenting the case in a way that could influence change.

What we do​

In this session we focus in on one issue that participants would like to tackle, questioning how they know this issue exists and what more do we need to know about it.

We consider the impact of this issue for individuals, communities as well as staff and what the benefits may be in addressing it for both groups.

We draw on and explore the benefits of using national standards, documents and guidance along with local guidelines and strategies where relevant.

Crucially, we focus on what participants want to change - which is often something that can be missed. This enables us to consider solutions to the problems or issues being encountered.

What people have said

The compilation of our 2024-25 operational plan was made much easier by this exercise. The plan "wrote itself".

We have established a culture of participation and engagement within our team.

We will definitely return to this template when we need to write our 2025-26 operational plan!
