Cancelled: Influencing and Implementing Improvement (Cohort 1)

This workshop is aimed at ALL health and care staff in North Cumbria and the Morecambe Bay area, and is suitable for anyone who wants to understand how to deliver successful improvement projects in their workplace. 

Combining the practical methods to use with the skills and techniques for leading improvement, the session will enable you to:

  • use and apply some common improvement tools 
  • influence and communicate more effectively with others, providing you with some useful hints and tips
  • engage others in order to work better with you for improvement


Preparation work

In preparation for the session, please complete an Influencing Style Questionnaire (including the scoring) and Waste Walk Template, and bring them with you on the day (both are available to download below).

How to use the Waste Walk Template:

  • Have a look at the Waste Walk Examples (also available to download below) to get some ideas
  • Choose a process to observe – at work or in your home life (at a restaurant, visiting a shop/GP practice etc.) and record the waste you see
  • You may find that some of the wastes don’t apply to what you are observing, if so, leave that section blank
  • Feel free to add a waste type that better explains your environment
  • If you feel that you want to take the next step - fill in what you think is causing the waste!


If you have already attended both the ‘Cumbria Production System Awareness Session’ and ‘Making an Impact and Influencing Change Together’, you do not need to attend this session.


Please note that tea/coffee will be available from 9am for a prompt 9.30am start. Lunch will not be provided.
