NHS and Lancaster University work together to explore strategy and change

11/03/2010 13:02:39

Lancaster University welcomed a group of 37 directors and senior managers from the NHS to the first day of a special short course called the Advanced Learning and Leadership Programme on Friday 22 October 2010.

The participants were nominated by their CEOs to attend the course, which aims to share and transfer insights between the University and the NHS. Ten organisations sent nominees, who need to work closely together and in new ways over the coming months to be able to address the current challenges facing the NHS.

This short video captures the essence of the day, which began with an update on some of Lancaster’s current work in health and a briefing from the NHS North-West’s QIPP Director and Lancaster alumnus, Talib Yaseen OBE.

The highlight of the day was the input from Emeritus Professor Gerry Johnson of the Centre for Strategic Management in LUMS. He shared ideas, tools and examples relating to strategy development and change management which will help the groups think through the radical transformations they need to handle at this time.

One participant commented:

‘Can I take this opportunity to thank the organisers for Friday's session, which was a really interesting day. I am currently doing my MBA and to have a day-long session by someone of Gerry's stature was excellent,’ Ian, NWAS
