  5. 5. Conclusions/Findings  Practitioner enquiry works  It’s complex and messy  Needs to be a disposition or stance  A continuous process, not a quick fix  Start from where you really are  A supportive, open culture based on trust  Senior leaders have to thoroughly understand and be involved
  6. 6. Conclusions (continued)  Need to step back from busyness  Slow down for deeper impact  We need to reframe CPD and CLPL  Needs support and understanding at all levels of the system  We need to avoid mutations
  7. 7. Alternatives  What's the option?  More of the same or dare to be different?  You decide!
