Matter of Focus directors, Sarah Morton and Ailsa Cook, will be bringing together insights from their years of work with public and voluntary sector organisations for this free webinar.
Across public services, organisations are grappling with the conceptual and practical challenges of working towards and evaluating outcomes in complex systems.
This includes the need to clearly understand the change mechanisms at the core of any approach; to streamline and improve data and evidence to tell their story, and the desire to develop a more evidence-based picture of what is and isn’t working.
Over the past five years, Sarah and Ailsa have been working together to develop and test practical approaches that help organisations understand their contribution to outcomes and use an outcome approach to understand and drive change. In this webinar, they will share insights from this work and propose that there are ways of working with outcomes that are both practical and robust.
The webinar will be of interest to people working in the public or voluntary sector who are commissioning, reporting to or developing outcome approaches and to people interested in public service reform, evidence to action and new approaches to accountability and performance management.
