Ever notice that the best ideas often come from the most unexpected sources? And that when you feel included and engaged, you want to do the best job possible?

Do you think the teams in which all members make valuable contributions produce much better results? Do you want to surface the best ideas for the problems you’re facing today?

If you answered yes to these questions, then our Engage to Improve! workshop is for you! Participants will learn about Liberating Structures, a series of seriously fun and engaging facilitation techniques that can be used in your meetings, training sessions, presentations, and more.

34 Tools to Build Skills & Spark Creativity
Check Out ATTIC for Great Activities

Want to help your team to think differently and creatively at your next meeting or teambuilding session? Check out ATTIC (Activities for Transforming Teams & Igniting Change)! 

ATTIC is a series of interactive activities that can help groups accelerate improvement. They are designed to develop communication skills, to model adaptive systems, to shift culture, and to foster innovation, creativity, and thought diversity.

For each activity, we outline its purpose, instructions, time commitment/range, number of participants, resources required, and debriefing notes.

If ATTIC looks familiar, you may have seen it before under its previous name, "Mindshift." We recently updated the name, and also added six new activities, bringing the total to 34! No matter what your team size, time frame, or challenge, you'll find something in here to spark creative thinking:

Debate & Dialogue
Extreme empathy
Look before you leap
One word
Polarity map

ATTIC is fully available online, and if you already have a physical pack of cards, you don't need to reorder! We can send you an Expansion Pack that includes the six new activities and an updated activity matrix.

Quality Cafe

Measurement for Improvement: Part 1
March 21 | 1200 - 1300 PST | WebEx | Password: BCPSQC

Many of us who are leading improvement efforts in health care are faced with that inevitable question: how will we measure improvement?

Choosing the right measure is foundational to all quality improvement work, from incremental changes to radical transformations, but it can be difficult to know where to begin.

This session links the measurement process with another improvement tool, the driver diagram! You'll develop an understanding of how a driver diagram can be used to dig deep into a problem and break it down into actionable pieces of work. We’ll also explore how to use a driver diagram to develop a measurement framework for your quality improvement activities, and best practices in selecting measures.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how to select appropriate measures for an improvement activity
  • Recognize the connection between driver diagrams and selecting measures
  • Develop an initial measurement plan for a quality improvement activity

And don't miss the sequel to this Quality Café in May!
