Blended Solutions, Part 1 – A Systemic Approach

As we learn about how to improve performance in organizational settings, it’s easy (or at least easier) to look at the discrete parts of the process and understand each of them in isolation. The science and art of this work is to put the parts together in a logical, coherent and compelling way so decision makers say “yes” to your proposed interventions and other stakeholders are motivated to change and improve. Working from a commonly used model of performance improvement, we discuss the challenges of doing good work throughout the process. This will include considering when to use a team approach, when a blended solution might be appropriate, and how to sell your proposal. We shall discuss some of the key issues that we have encountered as practitioners and how to anticipate and plan for them.
