Visit to UK
Hi Our organisation in Western Australia (Enablewa) has implemented a self managing philosophy/structure across the organisation of just over 560 employees. We are 18 months into the staged transition and very excited about what I see and hear. We have had some challenges and continue to have more. We have multiple sites across a largish geographical area. I have the opportunity to visit the UK in late March and wondered if there were people out there that would be willing to talk about their experiences and learning.
That sounds like a great journey, Robert. Would love to know more next time we're in Western Australia (we visit once or twice every year). Two things:
1. Do you have more information to share so I can read more about what you have been up to?
2. We'll share this through our social media channels, so we can activate our wider community and hopefully get you the contacts you are looking for.
Hi Brendan Thanks for getting in touch. Our journey started with Buurtzorg and I had the fantastic experience of visiting Buurtzorg and a couple of other organisations in the Netherlands a couple of years ago. I learnt an amazing amount and really got inspired by what might be possible. I'll contact you through your website. Hope we can catch up. I'll be in the UK 25th March to 1 April.
Hi Robert, I work with medium sized organisations to help them to design their services, but at the same time to arrange their staff to work together in teams that then work far more independantly than previous. This goes hand in hand with developing the manager and leaders to change and develop their behaviours and approaches to sustain and work with those teams. What type of business is your organisation? It woudl be great to hear more.
Hi John. Thanks for the contact. Our organisation works mainly in the disability sector. We have just under 900 clients, a staff of around 650 spread across a large geographical area. We work in people’s homes and their community. We are progressively moving the decision making and responsibility away from a centralized model and flattening the structure. We’re already seeing positive outcomes, it’s not without it’s challenges but convinced we’re on the right track. Feel free to contact me via email at. firstname.lastname@example.org
