Health and care services need people who can think clearly, flexibly and analytically. People who can cast new light on familiar problems, and who can create new routes around long-standing obstacles. Services need people with strong ‘thinking skills’.
The good news is that these skills can be learnt. So the Strategy Unit , working on behalf of the Midlands Decision Support Network, is offering this one-day, face-to-face training workshop on ‘Thinking Tools’.
Fraser is a very knowledgeable and experienced trainer and is passionate about delivering this training and helping people to make better decisions. The feedback has been excellent – here’s just a few of the comments from the last session:
Fraser had the ability to open up the lid to really complex issues for us to look into, without it getting too overwhelming. The room was great, the catering and location were great… Really excellent day
The timing was great, location next to the train station. Lunch provided, excellent trainer – thoroughly enjoyable day and learnt a lot.
One of the best training sessions I’ve attended
Led by Fraser Battye, the workshop will cover tools for: understanding problems, creating solutions, and analysing solutions before implementing them.
The workshop is for anyone who wants to think more critically and creatively. So you could be an analyst, a team lead / manager, a programme or service lead, a clinical lead, a strategic lead – anyone who has to think and make decisions in some way.
The session is informal and interactive. You will choose which tools to cover, from a selection including: pre-mortems; problem trees; regression to the mean; breaking the rules; thinking on the margin; Ulysses pacts (and many more). But you don’t need to know what these tools are, before you come.
The session is also practical. You will apply the tools to your situation. So you should bring examples of problems, challenges and decisions that you face.
By the end of the day, you will have learnt new ways of seeing familiar things. You will be a more independent and analytical thinker, with practical tools to support you in future.
This is a one-day face to face workshop.
Venue: Birmingham TBC (short walk from New Street station)
