Entrepreneurial Leadership Development at Livewell Southwest
Livewell Southwest (SW) is the largest health social enterprise in the UK, with a turnover of close to 100 million pounds. It is constituted as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and operates across Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.
Last year we co-designed and rolled out a unique Enterprise Leadership programme, at this largest UK Health Social Enterprise. The aim was to expand and build on the enterprise and innovation culture that is growing here. Sponsored by the Board, our job with delegates was to generate new ideas, innovations, working practices and commercial propositions, to support Livewell’s future growth and development.
Impact with clients
We achieved great success, results and feedback from all involved.
30 business propositions were created during the programme and presented to the Executive Board for consideration and feedback. To date practically every ‘business case for change’ have been taken further within Livewell Southwest.
Business cases for change
Broadly, these business proposals were intended to:
- Improve health services to users, carers and communities, through new models of care for example.
- Improve staff motivation and morale: workforce and talent management proposal were pitched, plus recruitment and retention proposals targeting ‘hard to recruit’ clinical areas.
- Reduce costs and or increase revenue. Commercialisation of a range of services were proposed.
