The challenge for the Finance Director was typical and yet still daunting – finding £9.9m cost savings during the year. Creative solutions were needed and a trained, internal ThinkOn Coach helped the Finance Director to design innovative thinking workshops to identify numerous cost-saving ideas.

Hundreds of possibilities were created.

£11.6m cost savings were identified and realised (against the £9.9m target) and over 20 new, high value generating ideas were also produced

Change and transformation


Cultural transformation requires a shift in mindsets and beliefs (not just systems or competences) so that actions become natural.

Go M.A.D. Thinking helped an NHS Trust achieve cultural transformation by training and developing internal staff as ThinkOn ‘Master Coaches’ to spread and embed our methodology across 6,000 employees through a proven 12-point implementation blueprint.

The approach was to embed ‘purposeful and productive conversations’ through the Trust leading to changed organisational habits, continuous improvements and improved patient care.

  • What transformational results do you require in your organisation?
  • If your people were acting differently what possible results could be achieved?


Team/personal productivity/efficiency improvements

Sometimes Systems can get in the way of creative thinking!

A team leader of a healthcare supplier introduced the Go M.A.D. thinking approach to their team and through the use of Possibility Thinking they were able to implement improvements in batch change over times and batch file processes resulting in the creation of £2m extra capacity and a marked improvement in staff engagement and collaborative working.

Just because you have a mature quality system in place doesn’t mean you can’t make significant improvements.


Innovation

Imagine needing to involve over 60 stakeholders in a collaboration around a strategic topic, gather all opinions and create agreed goals and plans. Using traditional methods (meetings, workshops) this could take months to organise, facilitate and complete, and research suggests that the outcome will not be hugely successful.

Using innovative A.I. enabled collaboration software we can now help you to fast track your discussions and decisions. No need for meetings, venues, facilitators or administration the process takes care of the stress for you and can include any number of participants, any number of organisations and any topic.

Proven to be more successful than traditional methods, you can now align your strategic goals and get projects on track super-fast.

Results Acceleration


Operational Improvement to create cost savings

A RED rating in Nursing standards was not something to be proud of and so the Deputy Chief Nurse decided significant changes were needed – even during the Covid pressure period. Go M.A.D. (ThinkOn®) helped Matrons to think differently about their key issues and problems and turn them into solution focused goals and plans, using proven, practical frameworks and tools.

Learning via bite-sized, virtual modules helped the Matrons stretch their thinking and apply this to everyday activities.

Which caused a ripple effect, which changed their thinking, which changed their actions and changed their results.

And the best thing…. They did it themselves!



Taking personal responsibility (Engage and Empower)

How could you engage 300 Nurses to learn and apply coaching skills in 90 minutes?

One NHS Trust achieved this at their Nurse Conference by using the Go M.A.D. Coaching Cards and enabling Nurses to have the right questions in their hands to solve problems, generate ideas and focus on the achievement of goals.


Transforming managers to leaders

Inefficient e-rostering meant an NHS Trust relied heavily on nursing agency support which in turn meant high agency costs, low stability, poor efficiency and overall impact on nurse wellbeing.

Go M.A.D. (ThinkOn®) were asked to support nursing leaders to review their thinking and their actions associated with the issues and challenge themselves to think bigger, better and bolder about solutions.

90 nursing leaders (band 5 to Chief Nurse level) were trained in a series of 30, 60 & 90-day improvement challenges to deliver measurable ROI and improvements to patient care, and all nurses received access to a digital programme to create a common language. As a result, improved work patterns and e-rostering meant less reliance on agency workers meaning reduction in costs – £0.75m savings within 3 months.
