Innovating for Improvement: "Unleashing - a model for sustainability and spread of innovation and improvement”

The RCP and RUBIS.QI have been supporting The Health Foundation's innovating for improvement programme over the last 12 months. The video above was the latest webinar, chaired by Anna Burhouse- RUBIS.Qi director with keynote speaker Becky Margiotta- Principal and Owner of The Billions Institute. 

Innovating for Improvement supports teams to test and develop innovative approaches and ideas to improve health and social care delivery and/or self-management of health in the UK. This round of the programme has a particular focus on supporting the workforce to improve quality of care.

In this webinar Becky shares her thoughts about the importance of sustainability and spread in improvement and innovation methodology. The Billions Institute has developed what they call ‘Model for unleashing’ which defines how to achieve success in large-scale change. This approach moves away from the traditional management model of control and describes how to create structure and conditions that make it possible spread and scale of change to occur.
