Leading for Systems Change

This is an Integrated Care System practical, place-based support to build collaborative system-wide leadership thinking and practice, supporting pan-sector teams working across organisational boundaries on complex issues relating to ICS strategic priorities. It aims to build understanding and expertise within each ICS around what it means to work at a system level; to encourage new ways of working and – ultimately – to enable better outcomes for people using health and care services. 

Leading for System Change is not simply a leadership development programme for individuals. It brings together system leadership knowledge and principles with their practical application to enable colleagues to work together on deep-seated, complex issues that form part of the ICS’ priorities. It’s about supporting real change in your community, changes in the way people think, the way they behave and the way they interact, with better outcomes for local populations.

The offer will enable participants to work on a ‘wicked’ or complex issue that relates to ICS strategic aims, where progress requires cross-sector collaboration; having built-in citizen, patient or community involvement; clearly defined anticipated gains; demonstrable commitment to diversity and inclusion; and explicit support from senior stakeholders.
