  20. 20. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 What’s the evidence? The failure of large scale transformational change projects is rarely due to the content or structure of the plans that are put into action To make transformational change happen we need to connect networks of people who ‘want’ to contribute http://iedp.com/articles/vertical-leadership/?utm_source=Sign-Up.to&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=13787- 257163-Campaign+-+01%2F09%2F2016 Source: David Dinwoodie (2015) It’s much more about the role of informal networks in the organisations and systems affected by change
  21. 21. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 Do you remember that 3% of people in an organisation influence 85% of other people? Most of them are NOT people on list A Formal leaders typically make up 12% of an organisation and drive conversations with 55% of other people Source: Innovisor
  22. 22. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 Mark Jaben on the science behind resistance What NOT to do But what we do do Engage people here
  23. 23. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 Mark Jaben on the science behind resistance to change What NOT to do (but what we usually do) We don’t need buyers (who “buy-in” to change) We need investors What TO do Engage people here Engage people here
  24. 24. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 The predominant approach in recent years has been STRUCTURE but globally there is a big shift towards AGENCY The design dilemma at the heart of change Systemic approaches Performance goals Regulation Competition Programme Management Incentive systems Activation Ability to make choices Capability Leaders everywhere Social action Solidarity Social movements
  25. 25. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 Making sure that only people who should be in hospital are in hospital • The number of hospital beds occupied by patients whose transfer of care has been delayed should be reduced to 3.5% • Less than 15% of assessments [for continuing care] should take place in an acute hospital setting; • a standardised performance dashboard

  31. 31. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 Individual AND collective agency Individual agency: People get more power and control in their own lives: activation, shared decision-making and self- care Collective agency: People act together, united by a common cause, harnessing the power and influence of the group and building mutual trust

  43. 43. @helenbevan #solacesummit17 • systematic “change management” • too often, leaders prescribe outcome and method of change in a top-down way • change is experienced by people at the front line as “have to” (imposed) rather than “want to” (embraced) Change Programmes • everyone (including service users and families) can help tackle the most challenging issues • value diversity of thought • connect people, ideas and learning • Role of formal leaders is to create the conditions and get out of the way Change Platforms “Tear down the walls”
