The days after – a learning community to build back better

Excuse me for putting a business link here (I do it rarely) – but this is a community, principally focused on UK public services, and communities, voluntary sector – all of those with a primary focus on citizen and community outcomes) – to learn the lessons and build back better. We will be introducing systems concepts, and learning systems lessons, on an ongoing basis.

The days after – a learning community to build back better

-> We’ve been dynamic to deal with the crisis – amazing things have been achieved.
— How do we learn from these breakthroughs?
-> Things are still chaotic and confusing! And will be for some time as the ramifications continue.
— How do we make sense of things right now and for the future?
How do we prepare for a real reboot in ‘the days after’ the crisis?

We at the Public Service Transformation Academy have been working with some core organisations to start to think about these questions – and are now expanding to set up a wider learning community. There is no obligation and no charge. This is a place to share and build learning together.

Membership is open to anyone from any organisation with a primary focus on citizen and community outcomes – public services at any level, community and voluntary sector organisations, and others who deliver vital public services. The focus will be on the UK; those from other countries are welcome to join to share learning.
To join, email benjamin.taylor@publicservicetransformation.org

The group will meet fortnightly online, 2-3.30pm on Wednesdays.

The first virtual round table will take place on 13 May: what will we face in ‘the days after’?
An active online scenario planning session – and a look at the ‘three horizons’ model for future thinking.

The second virtual round table will take place on 27 May: how can we do radical rebuilding?
This will look at application of the ‘five worlds’ and ‘five key leadership practices’ applied not to organisations, but to creating place-based, emergent, learning systems.

Further dates to be planned. A core group will meet on the ‘off weeks’ to plan and input, and materials from each session will be shared with all participants. The community is supported with free groups on WhatsApp and groups.io
