Posted on 11 April 2017 (Permalink)

Through the AHSN Network, there is an exclusive offer to NHS providers in the West Midlands that want to build organisation capability in innovation adoption.

Imperial College Health Partners (ICHP) is working in partnership with thought leaders WhatIf! Innovation to deliver the Intrapreneur Programme – a programme aimed at supporting both executive and frontline staff in NHS provider trusts to adopt and scale innovation in their everyday roles. The purpose of the four-month programme is to enable providers to build capability and capacity to address their challenges through the adoption of innovation with a strong focus on scouting for existing best practices and adapting solutions to their environment.

The Intrapreneur Programme is an active learning programme of five intensive action-oriented workshops to push participant thinking, interspersed with project work in their trust, supported by on-site coaching. Previous participants have been really positive about the benefits it provided to them and their organisations. The key elements of the programme are:

  • Problem exploration and definition
  • Insight gathering and distilling opportunities
  • Scouting for best practices and solutions
  • Adapting solutions to fit
  • Rapid testing cycles to build and iterate.

The programme is currently recruiting for cohort three which kicks off in early May. More information, including impact, can be found here.

The course is already offered at a reduced cost of £2,800 +VAT per participant, but ICHP is offering a further 20% discount to those applying via their local AHSN. If you are at an NHS provider who is ready to learn from industry pioneers and have the motivation to succeed in a tough environment, please contact Shirlene Oh, Director, Commerce, Innovation & Capability Development at ICHP, on Shirlene.oh@imperialcollegehealthpartners.com or call 020 7960 6241 or 07961 089673, mentioning that you are a member of West Midlands AHSN.
