  • Apply to join Leadership and Management Development - Improvement East Started: Jul 2007 | 91 members
    Lead organisation: Improvement East
    Lead facilitator: Barbara Howarth

    Our purpose is to provide authorities in the East of England with information and debate that will help inform decisions about the most appropriate leadership and management development activity to support corporate, place-shaping and community ambitions. We have therefore asked fire/rescue and local authorities in the East of England for information about their current leadership and management development activity - what they think works, what doesn't - and for their recommendations to others. We have already heard from 20% of authorities and you can see their responses now. We will be posting further contributions from authorities as we receive these - a further number are already in the pipeline. Over the coming months, with your help, we aim to build a picture of current activity in the region - what's working, what isn't, where the gaps are - and suggestions for how authorities and the region can work together to address those gaps. We’ll also provide information about a variety of programmes and offers available, news, views from the world of local government and beyond.
