Course detail

This course provides you with the knowledge and skills to initiate and develop public purpose collaborations and shared service projects, whilst also giving you a valuable postgraduate qualification. You will become a skilled and valuable in-house resource, able to cascade your learned skills across colleagues in collaboration activities and reduce or negate the necessity to pay for external consultancy on projects.

Suitability

Public sector managers and consultants who wish to study the effective development of collaborations and shared service initiatives in the public sector and gain a qualification.

Content

• Module 1: The Essentials of Shared and Collaborative Working
• Module 2: Change Management Theory and Practice
• Module 3: Developing a Collaborative Transformation roadmap

Format

All three modules will consist of a mixture of tutor-led input and structured activities in which you are invited to explore and critically discuss how relevant concepts, theories and models have been and might be applied in the workplace to enhance organisational and managerial effectiveness. The structured direct contact sessions are designed to provide a tutor-led forum for the exploration of the underpinning principles, issues and demands of collaborative transformation activities within the current complex environment.

A typical session may comprise a lecture of approximately 60 - 90 minutes, where overarching conceptual frameworks and aspects of the literature may be introduced. This would normally be followed by an opportunity for issues to be discussed or a seminar topic to be presented. In seminars you will participate interactively in exercises or problem solving, or lead the group on specific topics for debate. Further support is provided through a virtual learning environment (i.e. Blackboard) and direct contact via email with the respective module leaders.

Assessment

Through a portfolio of work and critical reflection.

What is the benefit for my organisation?

Value for money by potentially saving thousands of pounds by building in-house capacity and thereby minimising external consultancy fees. These savings can be gained by applying a range of the 100 tools, techniques and templates, provided to each graduate, to create in-house reports, assessments, risk registers, stakeholder group analyses and action plans, and business case reports. Traditionally these are undertaken by external consultants at standard fees of between £750 and £1,000 per day. By developing and using in-house managers this could realise many thousands of pounds in tangible savings for shared service partnerships.
