Leadership Development

The Change eXchange series provides an opportunity for those involved in the design, lead and implementation of change across the public sector to meet and discuss common issues.

The series provides participants with a platform to hear from change practitioners and experts and to learn from case examples and research in order to inform and strengthen change leadership across the sector.    

Seminars will focus on sharing and promoting examples of good practice, allowing participants to benefit from the skills and experience of a wider network of people and situations.

Seminar sessions typically comprise Guest Speakers sharing their examples of planning or implementing a significant change initiative, complemented by input from academia or research to enable wider application of the information.

The series will be structured to form a comprehensive and integrated approach to understanding all aspects of change and participants can choose to attend all seminars or select ones which most interest them.  Seminar themes will cover a range of central change topics, including issues linked to strategy, leadership, people and culture.

Course Content

June 2017 Seminar:  Effective Change Implementation

Using case examples, the summer seminar will focus on the theme of Effective Change Implementation.  

The establishment of Tusla Child and Family Agency, following the merger of the HSE Child and Family Service Directorate with other state agencies will be discussed. Lessons learned from the merger are the importance of change ownership, vision, leadership, cross agency working and governance and are transferable to many other environments and situations.

Building the new Tusla organisation after the merger brought different challenges and this presentation will highlight the challenge of merging systems and processes but also the need for determined leadership, effective governance and extensive planning needed in order to truly merge people and cultures.

A presentation on the successful 1916 Commemoration programme of events will provide a link to our autumn seminar by looking at the key role stakeholders play in delivering change. Participants have an unique opportunity to explore some essential elements in large scale planning, engagement and implementation and review how successful implementation can exceed expectations.

These case examples highlight a broad range of key change themes which this Change eXchange series will continue to focus on and explore.  Further details of the Autumn Seminar will be announced when confirmed.
