Let me take you back to a great team I worked with, when we were stuck in dysfunctional patterns (still sadly familiar in many organisations today) – and ask you how we got out of it.
I’m going to come back on Friday and give ‘the answer’ – what we actually did. I’ll answer any questions in the comments!
> Shepherd’s Bush Advice Centre served the most excluded and vulnerable people in the borough with different types of expert advice.
> We were open very irregular hours due to staff availability and demand
> There were loooong waits and limited time appointments for customers. Nothing got fixed in the 20 minutes they got with a random specialist adviser (not matching their need), so files were made and appointments set up with the specialist
> This caused another load of hassle, as people missed appointments etc
> People often waited up to four hours to be told we didn’t provide the service they needed
What would *you* do to make improvements? We made some small ones – then a big leap!
