Think Big, Start Small- Planning for Scale Are you planning or currently undertaking an improvement project? This breakout will help you to explore the importance of planning so that your improvement can reach its full potential and impact on all who could benefit. You will gain an understanding of principles to support planning and delivery that supports achievement of results at scale from the outset, considering to what extent could the project could reach across your organisation. We will also talk about spread, i.e., creating positive changes that can be implemented in different parts of the system. The breakout will use case studies from across the country to examine these concepts and provide you with some insights on how to develop your improvement work.

We will look at why measurement is essential for quality improvement and will provide an introductory guide to different types of measures; process, outcome and balancing, and explore how a suite of qualitative and quantitative measures can be applied to support an effective improvement project. The session will share case studies from a variety of settings across the country to support you in the development of useful measures for your own work.
Story Board Spotlight
Sharing improvement work from across Scotland to improve the lives of children and young people is an integral part of learning sessions. New to this year’s breakout sessions is the ‘Storyboard Stage’. These sessions will allow attendees to hear from teams and individuals sharing examples of their quality improvement work on display at the event. Presenters will deliver short presentations on their storyboard and participants will be invited to interact, ask questions and share their own experiences. Each spotlight sessions will be on a specific theme and providing opportunities to network and share learning from across Scotland.
Introduction to Coaching Conversations (Beginner Level)
If your work involves supporting and encouraging individuals or teams working on improvement projects this breakout will help you think about how to maximise your contribution. The session will focus on how to have an effective coaching conversation to support, identify and deliver on improvement priorities. Illustrated with real examples, we will look at coaching proficiency, so that you can begin to develop knowledge in asking the right questions, listening deeply, assessing learning, and knowing when and how to give directed guidance.

If you want to improve local ownership and sustainability of improvement work that supports communites, then this breakout will be of interest to you. We will explore how co-production and community involvement adds value to your improvement work, and considers when to engage people in your improvement journey, how to achieve this so that it’s not tokenistic, and gives the project the best chance of sustained impact over time. This will be illustrated with real and practice examples, with an opportunity for you to consider how this can be applied in your setting.
